Jilly Wine Co Black Mountain Pinot Noir 2019
Black Mountain is a tiny little town south-west of Guyra on top of the great divide. The vineyard was planted to Pinot Noir in 2000. The vines sit on grey basalt soil at an altitude of 1306m ASL making it the highest piece of agricultural dirt in this country. This vineyard is run by Jilly using organic practices.
So much complexity packed into a Light Frame. Sweet and Sour Cherries, earthy and herbaceous. A dusting of tannin and electric acid. There's an inherent minerality to this wine that's akin to the wines of Etna in Sicily. Complex, bright and lovely to drink
