Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir 2018 (Mornington)

Tasting Notes
Montalto's 2018 Pennon Hill Pinot Noir has delicious aromas of red currants, blueberry, sour cherry, cranberry and dried strawberry combine with florals, dried herbs, spice, and earthy forest-floor qualities. On the palate, generous juicy red fruits meld with bramble and earth. The inclusion of whole bunch is evident with intense aromatics and a long savoury drive notable. French oak plays a lovely supportive role adding to the structure and flavour profile by way of mocha notes. An approachable Pinot Noir with excellent varietal and regional expression typical of the 2018 vintage.

Reviews

"A juicy and savory pinot with lots of dried-strawberry, chocolate and salted-caramel character. Medium body, bright acidity and a subtle finish. Drink now. Screw cap."

Montalto's 2018 Pennon Hill Pinot Noir is made from hand-harvested batches of pinot noir grapes from our vineyards that span the Peninsula, with approximately 50 percent coming from our cooler sites in Main Ridge and Red Hill, with the balance hailing from our Merricks and Tuerong vineyards.

The warmer 2018 season lent itself to increasing the amount of ‘Montalto-style’ whole-bunch fermentation; this technique involves loading whole bunches into a 2T open-fermenter and allowing them to undergo 10 to 14 days of carbonic maceration before being destemmed into 2 tonne open fermenters where primary wild fermentation is completed. The result is a significant increase in aromatics and savoury complexity. In 2018, 21% of the blend was made using this technique. The remaining portion of fruit is sorted on the table, destemmed and then allowed to soak on skins until the onset of wild fermentation. Ferment temperatures peaked at 32 degrees Celsius. At the completion of primary fermentation, the grapes were pressed and the wine transferred to French oak barriques and Puncheons (19% new) for natural malo-lactic fermentation. Barrel maturation was for 9 months followed by bottling.
