2017 Hanging Rock Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir
Wine Rating 
 
93

2017 was a vintage that will go down as one of the longest and coldest in the last decade, but also a year that has been capable of producing breathtaking Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that will be know for its longevity.

This release is produced from Hanging Rock’s Estate Vineyard perched above the township of Newham in the Macedon Ranges. The wine is a pretty light red in the glass with a nose that is dominated by red cherry with a delicate weave of earth from the inclusion of whole bunches and spice from time in good French oak.

The palate has the mineral structure that you expect from the region with a tension of tannin and acid against pure red cherry fruits that broaden on the mid palate but will take time to grow in stature. The finish has slow build of textural but fine tannin and some elegant baking spice notes.
