2009 Pegeric Pinot Noir
Wine Rating 
 
95

The most recent release from Pegeric, which is remarkable given the wine is already 12 years old. The vineyard was one of the first close planted to Pinot Noir when established in 1987 at an elevation of 635 meters in the Macedon Ranges. The wine was aged in a large proportion of new French oak prior to extended bottle age.

A light red hue that is tending to auburn at the rim, the nose gives secondary aromatics of sous bois (mushroom, leaves, undergrowth) and wood derived spice. The palate shows what the Macedon Ranges can do with time, acidity is still textural and lithe with tannins now supple and taking on both earth and gentle spice; fruit tends to red cherry with impressive length and fine lines of acidity that give the impression the wine will keep evolving for years to come.
