Product Description

Mount Macleod is the second label of the Burgundian-inspired and boutique-scaled Caledonia Australis who, in their fairly short lifespan, have carved a reputation amongst Pinot cognoscenti as a fine source of excellent value, aromatically complex and elegant Pinot Noir. Given the quality and value Mount Macleod offer, their wines remain criminally under-exposed, though the 2013 - Mark Matthews' finest to date - has everything required to make the breakthough. Fermented naturally (with one fermenter inoculated with a Pied de Cuve made the previous day) the wine was then raised in a mixture of stainless steel (with a long post ferment maceration) and old wooden barrels that have previously housed the Caledonia Australis Pinot. 
 
This is probably the ripest, juiciest Macleod Pinot Noir we have seen, although temperd by refreshing bearly percettable tannins, it's the balance of the vintage that takes centre stage. The palate delivers mouth filling succulence in the form of plummy richness, ripe strawberries and cherriy fruit. It's fruity core, however, is adroitly tempered by a gush of ripe, mouthwatering acid and fine grained fruit tannins that will see the wine develop and show lovely secondary characters as the wine reaches four of five years old.
