2021 Best's Great Western Old Vine Pinot Meunier

2021 Best's Great Western Old Vine Pinot Meunier


Great Western, Victoria

"Hand-picked fruit fermented in small, open-top fermenter with 25% whole bunches, basket pressed to French barriques (25% new), matured 8 months in oak. Sourced from the original 1868 plantings of pinot meunier. Prepare yourself for an exquisite beauty of a wine. It enjoys an effortless purity of fruit; from aroma to palate there's a delicacy of concentrated red berries, pomegranate, violet, dusty earth, underbrush and dried herbs. Superfine across the palate, almost sinewy at this early stage, but supported by firm, focused tannins for a lot more time in bottle. A lot more." 96 Points - Jeni Port (Halliday Wine Companion)

"Medium ruby colour with a good purple tinge. The bouquet has depth and savouriness, all about dried herbs, porcini mushrooms and peppery dried meat and bresaola. It is light-bodied but beautifully textured and supple, super-refined, with great drinkability and is already starting to show complexity. Long and satisfying in the mouth. A superb example of the grape." - 96 Points - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

"Red cherries, plums, dried oranges, sliced mushrooms and wet earth on the nose. It's medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins and a creamy texture. Earthy, spicy edge. Long and complex. Drink now or hold. Screw cap." - 94 Points - JamesSuckling.com
