Mon Cheval ‘Mon Petit Cheval’ Pinot Noir 2013
$39.90 inc. GST
94/100 – Bob Campbell MW
“Unfined and unfiltered pinot noir from a 2.2 ha vineyard in the Weka Pass area of North Canterbury. Mellow, savoury and appealing wine with developed old leather, plum, spice and roasted chestnut flavours. An elegant wine that’s drinking beautifully now.” – Bob Campbell MW
Tasting Note: The first ever release of the Mon Petit Cheval label, this wine is the ‘younger brother’ to the Mon Cheval range, exhibiting the same refined aromatic and textural complexities, but with a gentler and more fruit-forward profile. Packed full of red fruit and spice aromas, with hints of anise, florals and a stalky herbaceous influence, it’s generous on the palate with firm tannins and medium-plus acidity supporting a solid finish. Just entering its drinking window, it will continue to reward for 5+ years.
Variety: Pinot Noir
Region: Waipara Valley, New Zealand
