Shy at first, the 2018 Meres evolves to open a deeply perfumed and aromatic nose; pretty red fruits (strawberry and cherry) together with rhubarb and floral notes. Subtle savoury spice aromas emerge. The palate is delicate yet deep with an attractive supple mid-palate, built on vibrant red fruits and earthy tannin. Long, fine-tuned and energetic, the wine finishes with dried orange peel and cranberry acidity. Always the most attractive, aromatic and supple of the trio, this vintage is no different.

Single vineyard pinot noir. Mornington Peninsula. Well known, well loved. Lovely length, aided by fine fingers of tannin. I could give this 92 or 96 or anywhere in-between and sleep easy with any of them. The sweet-sour flavours of this year’s release mean that Meres doesn’t have its usual meaty oomph but I don’t mind it this way, in fact I probably prefer it.
