Red and black cherry are the hallmark fruit qualities in the 2017 Montalto Estate Pinot Noir. Combine this with notes of black tea, blood orange, florals, spice, earth, dried herbs and forest floor, with a lick of tiramisu trailing from the oak and the result is a formidable and complex aroma profile.
The 2017 Montalto Estate Pinot Noir floods the palate with plenty of juicy red and black cherry fruit together with crushed raspberry. The sweet fruit is harnessed by some serious structural ripe tannin which carries the length of the palate and is supported by bright natural acidity and a long and savoury finish.
