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. 

Cropped from dry-grown, organic vines (again on deep Gippsland ferresol soils) the Pinot is fermented naturally then raised in a mixture of tank (with a long post-ferment maceration) and old wooden barrels that have previously housed the Caledonia Australis Pinot. In 2019 Mathews used a greater proportion of whole bunches (20%) which also meant a shorter extraction period due to good early tannin pickup. It's a silky Pinot with a fleshy, textural palate and a heady mix of red fruit, loads of spice and forest-floor savouriness. The value speaks for itself.
