Toolangi Estate Pauls Lane Pinot Noir 2018

Product Description

The Pauls Lane Pinot was hand harvested from Toolangi's 2001 plantings (MV6 clone grapes in E Block rows 46-66), partially de-stemmed (50% whole bunches retained) and naturally fermented in open top wooden fermenters. In total, the wine spent 23 days on skins before being pressed to French oak (20% new) for eight months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. This is obviously much deeper and more luscious than the entry level wine, and immanently drinkable now. Expect layers of fleshy Pinot fruit, suggesting rose petal, plum and earth, balanced by fine, powdery tannins and a long complex finish that perfumes the mouth with sour cherries and sappy freshness. Again, really very smart.

"Destemmed to open fermenters, 50% whole bunches, 23 days on skins, 8 months in oak (20% new). It somehow manages to be complex and effortless at once. Sappy herbs, boysenberry and red cherry, fennel seeds and tobacco. There's smoky oak too, and associated svelte texture, but there's so much going on that it's hard to see where one thing starts and the other leaves off. Always a good sign. It's a wine to make pinot drinkers happy." 95 points, Campbell Mattinson, Winecompanion.com.au
