World Luxury Pinot SIX Pack
Winery : Various
We traverse Burgundy, Germany, Oregon, Tasmania, Victoria and Martinborough to bring you this outstanding compilation of the world's rare and luxurious pinots.
1 x 2015 Ata Rangi McCrone Pinot Noir (Martinborough NZ): The McCrone Vineyard was planted in 2001. Clonal material is a mix of the Ata Rangi Abel clone, Dijon clones and Clone 5. The vineyard was originally owned by Don and Carole McCrone who also owned a 10 acre pinot noir vineyard in Yamhill, Oregon. Clive Paton and the Ata Rangi team developed the Martinborough block for the McCrones and later purchased the vineyard. The wine is always released with at least four years bottle age. Nick Stock 97 points '...A sensational edition of the McCrone Vineyard...'
1 x 2012 Alcorso Pinot Noir (multi regional TASMANIA): No 1 Favourite 2019 Tas Pinot Noir Showcase. A 'wrap me up in layers of cashmere' kinda pinot - its velvety richness is all enveloping, the plush fruit goes on and on. Still a baby at seven years in bottle, it will definitely cellar well for at least another five. Julian Alcorso's retirement gift for himself was to source the best grapes for the best pinot noir that he could make.
1 x 2015 Huber Alte Reben Spatburgunder (Baden GERMANY): The Huber winery is in Malterdingen in the deep south-west of the Baden, located on the foothills of the Black Forest mountains between Strasbourg in the French Alsace Region and the city Basel in Switzerland. Huber's 'premier cru', 40 year old vines, third whole bunch, unfiltered. Importer notes: 'Complex, deep aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate and spice but also soft tannins, a frisky-elegant character with a fine echo.'
1 x 2016 Patricia Green Cellars Old Vine Pinot Noir (Willamette, OREGON): A very exciting and outstanding new addition to our Oregon range. Antonio Galloni 93 points 'Deep, lurid red. Sexy red berry liqueur, incense and Asian spice aromas are complemented by subtle cola and candied rose notes. Silky, smooth, and penetrating on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry, bitter cherry, and spice cake flavours that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Seamless and densely packed yet lively as well, finishing with strong red fruit thrust and velvety tannins that arrive late.'
1 x 2015/16 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir (Geelong, VICTORIA): Described as the more 'masculine and edgy' of the famous By Farr Pinots, Farrside is grown on black volcanic soils over limestone. Dark, briary fruits, plenty of spice and dry but plump tannins. Use of whole bunch doesn't assert itself, it serves simply to lift the perfume and open up the texture.
1 x 2015 Thibault Liger-Belair Les Grands Chaillots Bourgogne OR 'La Roche' Hautes-Cotes de Nuits (Burgundy FRANCE): Thibault is regarded as one of the finest producers in Burgundy. This NSG 'Bourgogne' is a step up from many wines labelled thus. Vineyard notes: 'We purchase fruit from vines that are 45 t0 80 years old. Located in the commune of Nuits, exactly in the axis of the "Saint-Georges", this parcel gives Burgundy wines for ageing, (which are) structured and very aromatic..'
