Mountford Estate Pinot Noir Waipara New Zealand Stelvin 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Exotic, perfumed nose, luscious, deep redcurrant flavours, fleshy, seemless<br/>tannins and meaty palate. A Pinot Noir that would make a brilliant food wine,<br/>gutsy yet accessible and full of New World character with generousity of fruit.

Early pioneers of the wine industry in the South West of Western Australia, the Mountford family selected Pemberton with its high winter rainfall for the unique flavour potential possible from this cooler and largely forested region. Trained horticulturist Andrew Mountford was looking for a region as yet undiscovered in Australia and chose the site of the vineyard based upon the combination of soil, climate, topography and of course most importantly the right feel. Eighty acres of undulating country gave all the variables needed for this dream and a fifteen acre vineyard was planted. Obvious cool climate conditions, amongst the coolest in Western Australia were suitable for Andrew and Sue Mountford's passion for the classic early ripening varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. In this regions short history these varieties have proven more than any other to be the correct selection. Established in 1987 and now one of the regions oldest vineyards, these vines are producing fruit with true intensity and complexity. This is due to careful organic vineyard practice since inception and continual sound environmental care. These practices have enabled expression from vineyard to bottle ensuring all the wines retain their essence of place. Read less
