Pinot Noir “17 Valley” 75cl (2015) MOUNT RILEY
£21.29 per bottle
The “17 Valley” is an iconic vineyard, their furthest site from the Richmond Ranges and so gets the least amount of rainfall. That, combined with clay based soils and beautiful views of the Pacific ocean, makes it a cracking site to grow grapes. Available in the UK exclusively through Alivini. The grapes used in producing this wine were handpicked, cold soaked and fermented using indigenous yeast from Mount Riley’s winery and vineyard with a portion fermented as whole clusters. The wine was then aged for ten months in a mixture of new and seasoned French barriques. As a result, the wine is deep crimson in colour with garnet-ruby hues and a complex bouquet full of black cherry, red fruit and spice aromas with an overlaying smoky note. Concentrated and complex in the mouth with richly textured sweet fruit flavours enveloping the fine tannins and balanced acidity. It drinks well now and up to 2022 – best paired with game, red meat and rich, robust vegetable based dishes.
