Koyama Mountford Vineyard 'Liaison' Pinot Noir 2016

AT FIRST SIP-Muddled strawberry, rose hip and red plum. Gentle spiced palate with cinnamon and cardamom overlay dried beetroot and porcini. The structure is phenomenal, very fine long tannins, overall silk sensations. The acidity is almost crystalline in structure, reminiscent of pomegranate seeds. AFTER A FEW-Slow cooked lamb jus and the perfect crunchy cherry.

About This Wine

Completely destemmed and put into seasoned oak barriques, this is a combination of the estates Pinot Noir vineyards. An excellent introduction to Takahiro's wines. 

In 1991, Buffy and Michael Eaton chose to establish the Mountford Vineyard on the steep hillside of eastern Waipara for its elevation and active limestone soils. The highly revered CP Lin—who
is legally blind—impressed Michael with his winemaking skills and incredible sense of smell. The wines he produced would see the vineyard gain a cult following in New Zealand.  Current winemaker, Takahiro Koyama began as CP's assistant whilst attending the local enology school. Takahiro then began his own label; Koyama. 
When the opportunity arose for Koyama Wines to purchase the Mountford vineyard in 2017, Takahiro jumped at the chance. An opportunity to honour his mentor and continue CP Lin’s legacy of crafting beautiful, expressive wines was too good to pass up. It is only in the last two years that these wines have been imported into Australia.
