2017 Old Vine Pinot Meunier

2017 Old Vine Pinot Meunier

This is one of the wines, the Thomson family and whole team really get excited about. Not only because of its limited production and rarity but because we all simply love to drink it. Young or old, it amazes us for its balance, length, flavours, longevity and it's simple drinkability.
The 2017 is a return to the style made in the 70's through to the 90's. Slightly lighter but with more aromatics, greater length and one of the best our winemaker has said he's made. The dried rose petal and culinary spices form part of a deep scented aroma. Glacé cherries with savoury spicy notes, bond in a harmonious marriage with the lingering velvet structure. Try it with dried morel mushrooms rehydrated in melted Irish butter, tossed with a dash of cream and homemade pappardelle pasta.

Wine Profile
James Halliday 2019 Wine Companion I feel a compulsion to swallow some of a wine I taste in the normal 70 or so wines sampled per day for the Wine companion, but I plead guilty here. Its unique 150+ years of history makes if impossible for this wine to be made anywhere else in the world. Even if you were just tasting history it would have its call, but when you add in a very good vintage and sure hands in the winery you would likely buy it just for its quality. Light but bright crimson, its length is prodigious, its scented bouquet a siren call, the palate silk. Rating 98 points Drink 2037
