Staindl Pinot Noir Selection Grand Millesime 2016 (5185)

Australia
Pinot Noir

The Staindl vineyard was one of the earlier plantings on the Mornington Pensinsula. The first vines were planted in 1982 and these, along with a later planting 12 years ago are used for this wine. The later vines are close planted on low, single cane trellis as you would see in Burgundy. Everything in the vineyard is hand managed and from 2017 the vineyard will be certified biodynamic. Cropping levels are very low at around 1 tonne per acre.

 

The Selection Grand Millesime comes from a single two year old Seguin-Moreau barrel with close grain and light toast. The wine was made by Rollo Crittenden and Paul Staindl.

Medium red. Expansive, aromatic nose of cherry and plum with a cool mint-like lift from the 15% whole bunch. The palate displays spicy notes with red fruits and defined minerality. In the mouth the wine fans out and remains very persistent after swallowing. Quite high in acid providing a fresh note to the layered flavours. Not a typical Aussie Pinot in that the fruit is not big and rich, in fact it is tightly wound. I see a little of the Leroy unfined, unfiltered, stems and restrained power here. Not Richebourg or Musigny of course, but a wine that punches above its weight.
