Jilly Wine Co. 'Black Mountain' Pinot Noir MT 2018

$55.00

'While most of the oeuvre of Jilly Wines, let’s say the avant garde of younger generation wine producers of Australia, are busily prepping up fun-loving, good times pet nat naturally-sparkling-in-bottle-wines, here’s a methode tradtionelle of pinot noir from ‘the highest vineyard in the country’ (1306 metres above sea level) located in New England, NSW. No price on bottle, so making a guess on the fly for RRP$.

It shows with a light blush, a kiss of salmon pink, and opens with rose water, sour cherry, alpine herb scents. Pretty as. The palate has a curious but very good savoury, game meat element, some good oxidative, nutty-saline character, a kiss of cherry-berry fruitiness, but barely there, and a zing of very perky acidity coupled to vigorous and very tight, little bubbles. It’s flavoursome, complex enough and highly drinkable. It’s a cracking wine and drinks absolutely a treat.'
