Luna Estate Blue Rock Pinot Noir 2016

GARY WALSH – WINE FRONT AUSTRALIA ON OCT 19, 2017
Tasted about twenty something Martinborough Pinot Noir, in-situ, last week which was a pleasant enough task. This wine was first in the lineup and impressed me straight away. Vineyard planted in 1986 on its own roots, and I believe, perhaps unusually for Martinborough, has a high percentage of clay in the vineyard.

Description

Luna Estate Blue Rock Pinot Noir 2016

DESCRIPTION

The Blue Rock vineyard was planted in 1986; a north facing undulating vineyard of rare geology, an ancient marine seabed of layers of clay loam, limestone, greywacke and, you guessed it, blue rock.

As with Eclipse, this sees 30% new oak for 12 months.  A fine grained and amazingly long wine, this is a style of succulence and lusicousness, maintaining a beautiful balance of fruit generosity, tannin ripeness and elegance throughout.

“Cherry pip, plenty of spice, even a dusting of pepper, rosy perfume. Juicy natural feel, lively and sappy, red cherry layered with dried herb, dustiness to the tannin, and a long perfumed, sappy finish. Has personality and energy. It’s very good and feels unforced and, well, just a bit lovely.”  94+ points, Gary Walsh, www.winefront.com.au
