This abandoned wine estate was only rediscovered in 2002 and it is something of a success story. Their winemaker Frank Manifold is steadily making a name for both himself and for Mount Brown, with the estate Pinot Noir winning a great review in Decanter in 2016.
This is a well-balanced wine with great purity of raspberry and cherry fruit. Juicy, elegant and refreshing with soft tannins. A great accompaniment to game dishes.
Lifted and overt Pinot fruit with perfumed fresh and sour cherry aromas. Crunchy red fruit flavours with savoury elements, a very pure expression. There are delicate floral hints intermingled with spices, while a light use of oak works well with the structure and minerality of the wine.- 95 pts Melanie Brown, Christine Parkinson, Philip Tuck MW - Decanter Magazine
