Other Reviews....
Let me put it upfront: corks don't come better than this. This was a great pinot vintage, and everything about this patrician pinot reflects this, and a great deal more. The colour is deep and bright, the bouquet with enough different aromas to cause the beagle to sit by the glass and refuse to move on, the palate with more of the same, no single fruit variety dominant, multi-spice waiting its turn, and the texture and structure of Grand Cru status. Get in the queue to buy this, don't worry about the price.

Mount Mary Pinot Noir doesn’t quite burst from the blocks in the way of most modern Yarra Valley pinot noir, but it’s proven to be eminently age worthy. Out of interest, there are over 30 different clones of pinot noir growing in the Mount Mary vineyard, the pinot noir taken as cuttings in the early 1970s.
If ever there was an example of the classic Mount Mary pinot noir style, then this is it. It’s powerful but stand-offish, somewhat aristocratic in its fruit and oak handling, offers a firm grip of tannin and feels built to evolve slowly. It can be consumed and enjoyed now, most certainly, but its best is long ahead of it. It has an imposing beauty.
