MWC Pinot Noir 2018
The grapes for this Pinot Noir were picked from single vineyards located in North Eastern Victoria. Crushed during the cool of night to retain their varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout the winemaking process. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a dense, rich color and allowing for gentle and maximum flavor extraction. The aroma is enticing with intense plum, cherry and strawberry fruit with a hint of spicy oak. The fresh fruit momentum continues on the palate with vibrant plum and dark stone fruits finishing with some firm acid, beautiful tannins and integrated oak. This wine offers heaps of bright strawberry and raspberry fruit underpinned by white spice, floral and savory oak notes. A touch of heat can be felt from the alcohol but is compensated for by the mouthful of fruit, herbs, savory tannins and lifted acidity. Pair this medium- to full-weight Pinot with grilled portobellos or pork chops.
