2016 On Giants' Shoulders Pinot Noir
This is a fine, pure and vibrant expression of old-vine Martinborough Pinot and a wine I think is going to become a cult classic in time (I'm biased). It is medium weight pinot, very savoury and earthy with lots of texure, black dorris plum, and lifted bergamot florals. It has tight lean tannins and acidity and the structure and complexity to age for 10 years+. It's also got a fantastic 95 point review from Aussie writers Mike Bennie and Gary Walsh aka The Wine Front, "Slightly earthy and gamey, in a good way, cocoa dipped plums, floral too. Full bodied, layered with tannin, dried herb perfume, and more of that rich tannin pushing it out. Heaps of power, and a feel of ‘minerality’ throughout. Woah. Great expression of Martinborough Pinot Noir here."
