Hurley Vineyard 2015 Lodestone Pinot Noir
Winery : Hurley Vineyard
96 POINTS : JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
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. Lodestone is one of the three 'climats' on the Hurley Vineyard site. The others are Hommage and Garamond (not available).
'A nose of ripe cherries, flowers, sage and wet clay leads to a tight and precise palate of succulent red fruits and dried mushrooms that is driven by the racy acidity and coated with the ultra-fine tannins of the vintage. Pure, beautifully balanced and very lingering, this medium-bodied wine eloquently expresses the terroir of Lodestone.' Kevin Bell's wine notes
'We consider these are wines of great precision, purity and balance. They are quite exceptional.'
