Mount Mary Pinot Noir 2014

Winery: Mount Mary
Region: Yarra Valley
Wine: Pinot Noir
Variety: Pinot Noir
Vintage: 2014
UOM: 750ml

Deep colour by any pinot standards, especially those of Mount Mary. Shows the small berry, small bunch genesis of this low-yielding year; plum leads, with black cherry close behind, the balance and length nigh-on perfect. If ever a Mount Mary Pinot was built for the cellar, this is it. 95 points, drink to 2029. James Halliday's Wine Companion

This 2014 edition is sealed under cork and so Sam Middleton of Mount Mary sent two bottles in for sampling. Neither were corked but both were consumed to the very last drop, an almost unheard-of scenario in the wine journo’s life. But it says a lot of both the wine’s charm and drinkability.

It’s 12.8% alcohol and yet it has excellent colour and quite a lot of fruit/flavour depth. That’s just one aspect of its magnetism. The flavours have that water-based feel; there’s nothing oily or alcohol-dissolved in the way the flavours juice through the mouth, the wine’s notes of cranberry and tangerine as important as the mainstay of ripe plum and black cherry. It’s complex too, with these twigs and those herbs, complemented by a firm mesh of dry, fine-grained tannin. A beautiful pinot noir, it most certainly is. 95 points, The Wine Front
