2017 Momento Mori Cardinia Ranges
Always happy to have new Momento. This is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Notes from the winemaker, Dane..: Geographically the vineyard sits about halfway between the Yarra Valley and our place in Gippsland. It is composed predominantly of de-composed granitic sand with large (the size of cars large), lumps of Granite poking through the surface throughout the rows. The soils are very lean and ferrous giving the wine a very mineral drive. It has amazing structure and vitality which I think the extra year in tank certainly contributed to. It has an amazing energy and purity to it. The wine was made entirely in stainless steel with zero additions. Including no so2.
