Mike Bennie R S H Pinot noir

New Mornington pinot noir in full effect.

Mmm, smokey, toasty aromas with dark berries and brambles, savoury spice, leather strap and blood sausage. Tangy and bright in the palate, very lifted in fruit flavour and coursing with citrus/cranberry acidity. Brisk, clean and slender with a whip of peppery spice and some building concentration. Tannins are sleek, fine and offer framework. A delicious, slim and toned wine of light, frisky, quietly raw fruit and a reserve of elegance nigh on shyness, but you know in time this will be more lovely.
