2021 Mount Fishtail Pinot Noir

The Pinot Noir grapes were harvested and fermented in small batch quantities; and hand plunged daily. The wine was left on the skins for 21 days post ferment and then drained to older French barriques for 8 months of barrel ageing before release.


A rich and ripe Pinot Noir displaying dark cherry, berry fruit and savoury characters. A generous concentrated palate exhibits well integrated fine tannins, and delivers a wonderful persistence of flavour.

TASTING NOTES:

Best matched with your favourite dishes - from delicately flavoured cheeses to venison on the barbecue. Our recommendation though is a classic rack of lamb cooked with fresh rosemary.

"Combining sweet fruit notes of plums and cherries with warm spicy nuances, it’s delightfully complex and inviting. The palate delivers juicy fruit intensity and plump mouthfeel, beautifully supported by fine texture and well-integrated tannins, making it harmonious and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2025."

Winemaking.

Quality is the absolute focus of Mount Fishtail wines and it starts in the vineyard. Here, no short cuts are taken in making a truly great wine, and this continues in the winery where ‘handcrafting’ is the applied standard.

Being a family-run business, control over quality is truly ‘hands on’. Through every day personal involvement, a focus on quality, and a commitment to wine lovers, makes this a labour of love.

Mount Fishtail's philosophy is: "the best fertilizer is the foot of the farmer".
