UNMISSABLE AUSTRALIAN PINOT NOIR - JAMES HALLIDAY JUNE 2019

Hand-picked and sorted, 4 day cold soak, open-fermented with 5% whole bunches, 17 days on skins, 11 months in French oak (30% new). A complete wine, everything in place. Full clear crimson hue; generous red and purple fruits. It's the texture of the wine, softly spicy, that takes this pinot onto another level. (95) JAMES HALLIDAY

Winemaker Sim Steele came up from Melbourne on Thunderbird 2 this Monday to pay me a visit. Sadly I had a ludicrous head cold, but happily, I kept the wines and can try them again today. Probably the strongest set of wines from Medhurst to date in vintage 2018.

Pretty thing we have here, all flowers, red fruits and spice. Medium-bodied, juicy but controlled red fruits, a little bit of sap and spice, a gentle and charming feel, with fine powdery tannin, and a subtly autumnal finish of good length. Just lovely. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front
