2022 Marchand & Burch Villages Pinot Noir
This wine is part of the Marchand & Burch Australian collection. Sourced from the Mount Barrow vineyard located in the eastern, elevated end of the Mount Barker subregion in the Great Southern, it is a vibrant young middle weight wine that has all the potential to evolve and integrate into a fine Pinot Noir over time. Enjoy its youth and exuberance or cellar for further pleasures and insight.
Bright, translucent ruby in the glass, this elegant and energetic Pinot Noir shines due to elevated floral and red fruited notes. Savoury earth and spice tones mingle with red cherry, raspberry, rosemary, hibiscus, vanilla, and potpourri on the nose. Soft, silky tannins gather towards the front of the palate giving way to a smooth texture and rich fruited mid-palate. A lively, lingering acidity points to this wine’s cool climate origin. Impressions of red berries and floral tones remain on the palate forming a pleasant and dry finish.
Drink with baked porcini mushrooms on a fontina cheese risotto.
