2020 Hurley Vineyard 'Lodestone' Pinot Noir

$77.00

Place: Balnarring - Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Variety: Pinot Noir

Farming: Organic

Kevin Bell and Tricia Byrnes make expressive single vineyard pinot noirs from their Balnarring block that—although we try not to—have us drawing comparisons to Burgundy as these wines impress us with their finesse and power. Having said that, they speak with a distinctive Mornington accent, one that we love to hear.

Lodestone is the warmest of the single vineyards and is always harvested first.  Naturally, then, it’s powerful and concentrated, but not at the expense of freshness. Earthy on the nose and plush in the mouth. The fruit is darker in character than Hommage and Garamond, and the tannins more evident, reflecting the heavier, rockier, clay soil.
