Mondillo Pinot Noir 2015

$45.00
Vendor: Mondillo

Available

Dark, full-bodied with ripe black cherry aromas and a concentrated core of dark-red berry fruits. The smooth palate softly packed with fragrant spices, liquorice, chocolate, berry fruits and soft oak.

The 2015 Bendigo growing season had a cool beginning, followed by warm weather and calm conditions that provided the perfect environment for flowering. A warm summer lead to a dry sunny Autumn – the perfect harvest conditions for well balanced fruit. The fruit was hand harvested, 100% de-stemmed followed by a long cold maceration, fermented with indigenous yeast and gently pressed. It has been aged in French oak barriques, of which 30% were new for 11 months.

Drink/Cellar: Now until 2024

Serve with rich tomato/mushroom based recipes, pork, beef and lamb dishes.

“Appealing scented wine with ripe plum and dark cherry flavours together with a seasoning of spices including wild thyme and anise. An attractively textural Pinot Noir - silken with good weight. A wine with a strong Central Otago and Bendigo signature."
