Onannon Single-Site Leongatha Pinot Noir is a mix of several clones: D5, MV6 and 777. The grapes were destemmed into an open stainless-steel pot and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Semi translucent bright dark red colour with black tinged edges and a light red hue. Fragrant red cherry, wild strawberry and subtle anise aromas have a light violet overlay with dried herb, forest floor and spicy cedar ensuing. Delicious rich red to dark cherry and wild strawberry fruits cascade across the lightly weighted palate with terrific power melding into dried herb, subtle anise, forest floor and spicy cedar elements along the way. Smooth, supple mouthfeel with a clip of bright underlying acidity lending freshness. Silky tannins finishing with a long expansive aftertaste.

Fresh, frisky, strawberry and mint, perfumed too, and a modest amount of smoky earthiness. Limpid and fine, cool feeling, with a stroke of emery tannin, sap and spice, and a lively finish of excellent length. Beautifully made and so pleasing to drink. Touch and go for a higher score
