Hurley Vineyard 2015 Hommage Pinot Noir
Winery : Hurley Vineyard
94 POINTS : JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
A heady nose, this time of blueberries, blood plums, violets and lavender, giving way in the palate to explosive flavours of raspberries and other brambly fruits infused with a chalky minerality. The luscious, creamy and silky palate is balanced by ultra-fine tannins and lovely oak¸ a vibrant acidity assuring a clean finish. Kevin Bell's wine notes:
Kevin Bell and Tricia Byrnes of Mornington's Hurley Vineyard make pinot noir with great integrity and the utmost attention to detail to celebrate the unique qualities of their Mornington site. In vintage 2014, Hurley Vineyard celebrated its 14th vintage with the release of all the 'climats' - Hommage, Garamond and Lodestone.
Vineyard notes: 'We consider these are wines of great precision, purity and balance. They are quite exceptional.'
