2019 Murdoch Hill Pinot Noir
The MH's Pinot Noir is predominantly sourced from 20-plus-year-old vines in the Piccadilly Valley with a small and similarly aged parcel from Woodside.
Twenty-five per cent whole bunches were included in the wild ferments--all of which took place in small-batch, open fermenters--before maturation in French oak barriques, puncheons and foudre (15% new) for 10 months. Early flavour-ripening at low baume and incredible acidity light up this 2019 with a racier, crunchier, red-fruited feel than last year's release. Every bit last year's equal in terms of intensity, purity and value!
