2021 Bloody Hill Villages Healesville Pinot Noir
From the newer block on the Mayer home estate. This is all destemmed fruit which is a departure in winemaking approach too.
Very dark cherry schism of pinot noir, some choc-coffee notes, sweet, turned earth notes. Strong perfume. Supple in palate, shiny, fresh, dark fruited but lively, crisp tannins and jolly-good-time vibes. A sense of fanciness for sure, but mostly about the big drinkability scale things. Drink 2021 - 2025.
