2022 Marchand & Burch Mount Barrow Pinot Noir
Out of stock
The Marchand & Burch Pinot Noir is sourced from the Mount Barrow vineyard located in the eastern, elevated end of the Mount Barker sub-region. Planting commenced in 2005 and is dedicated to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for still and sparkling wine. The unique attributes of this site include an elevation of 380m and a panorama of vineyard aspects from north to south facing. Soils are some of the most ancient on the planet.
This unique terroir is instrumental in the production of this fine wine, which shows great depth of flavour, restraint, and intricate balance. Bright red fruits, dark plum, earth and smoke – powerful yet elegant Great Southern Pinot Noir.
The pale, translucent ruby hue points to the wine’s lithe layers of floral and briary aromas, yet hidden underneath are deep, brooding notes of dark fruits, charcuterie, and savoury herbs. Morello cherry, macerated strawberries and raspberries are interwoven with sage, rosemary, and prosciutto. Soft, supple texture and rich fruit viscosity form an appealing midpalate as bright acidity ripples down the sides of the tongue and velvety tannins settle at the back leading straight into an elongated finish. Oak emerges to the forefront as the wine opens, lending aromas of Rooibos tea and tobacco. There is a duality to this wine that adds to its appeal, effortlessly swaying from bright red berry notes to deeper, tantalising tones.
Drink with baked porcini mushrooms on a fontina cheese risotto.
Delightful to drink now, or worthy of exploration over the next 5 to 10 years.
