Mount Trio Home Block Pinot Noir 750ml (Porongurup, WA)
The “Home Block” Pinot Noir, is a ‘reserve’ Pinot made entirely from the first plantings on the Porongurup vineyard, 30kms east of Mt Barker and 40kms north of Albany in the cool, Great Southern region of Western Australia.
Beautifully perfumed with intense dark plum and spiced cherry fruit aromas. The French oak has contributed the smoky characters and the attractive pancetta &/or prosciutto-like aromas.
Has great depth of flavour with the smoky plum and spiced cherry fruit characters typical of cool climate Pinot Noir. These intense, fresh berry fruit flavours are beautifully complemented by the slightly charry oak characters from its maturation period. This wine has a lovely weight with great depth of flavour on the mid palate, a gentle fresh acidity and the lightly drying tannin astringency towards the finish contributing to its great length of flavour.
Deceptively drinkable now (pair it with your favourite duck dish) we’re very confident the Home Block will continue to improve with many more years in the bottle, eg 6 – 8 years or so.
