Hurley Vineyard Garamond Pinot Noir 2019



In stock

  • Single vineyard Pinot Noir from the Mornington Penninsula
  • A wine of pristine fruit flavour, exotic aromatics and length both on the palate and in the cellar
  • 20+ year old vines from an east-facing site planted to the MV6 clone of Pinot Noir

This is entirely from selected barrels of Garamond.  The fruit was harvested on 3 March 2019, fermented under the action of indigenous yeast, basket-pressed on 29 March 2019 and, after twenty months in barrel (one third new), it was bottled on 3 November 2019. Closed with Diam cork.

Mid-garnet again but deeper.   In the nose there are alluring scents of flowers and ripe raspberries plus red cherries and pressed delicatessen meat like mortadella. The palate has concentrated flavours of black cherries and squishy forest berries which flare in the back palate.   A seamless luscious texture framed by fresh acidity combines with fine drying tannins to create a dry finish which fully exposes fruit flavours that linger long and clean.  The overall effect is one of complexity and sophistication.
