The 2015 Mount Mary Pinot Noir was awarded 99Pts by JH and it is a super duper deluxe wine, geezers it’s going to be a ripper in 5 to 7 years. 2015 was another great vintage for Victoria’s Yarra Valley, some awesome wines, in particular pinot noir, have been made.
There are about 30 different pinot clones planted at Mount Mary, cuttings were taken from 1970’s plantings at Great Western, I believe. All fruit is hand picked an matured in oak (25% new) for about 16 months.
This wine is awesome, quite savoury but possess a sweetness that keeps you coming back for more. It’s a bit tight right now but it’s going to unfurl into a beauty. It smells of spice, strawberries, plums and a touch of earth. The balance of acid and the tannin profile is unreal. If you are a pinot noir fan, you could spend the evening smelling this wine in the glass, it keeps changing. Mount Mary Pinot Noir’s have an ability to go the long haul, this could go 30 years.
The 2015 Mount Mary Pinot Noir is a very great and highly rated Pinot Noir from one of the Yarra Valley’s best producers.
