Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir 2019 (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria)
‘Red currants, blueberry, sour cherry, cranberry and dried strawberry combine with florals, dried herbs, spice, and earthy forest-floor qualities.
On the palate, generous juicy red fruits meld with bramble and earth. A tickle of whole bunch enhances the aromatics and provides some savoury drive. French oak plays a lovely supportive role adding to the structure and flavour profile by way of mocha notes. An approachable Pinot Noir with excellent varietal and regional expression typical of the 2019 vintage.’
