MIKE PRESS 2017 PINOT NOIR
Tyson Stelzer - October 2018
Mike Press Adelaide Hills Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
Bunch thinning thrice during the growing season and maturation in French oak does not sound like the recipe for a pinot noir that sells for less than $20. It tastes like it’s worth double its price, an elegant expression of this high vineyard, capturing rose petal fragrance and morello cherry and strawberry hull flavours, framed in finely structured tannins and tangy acidity. It carries with length and character, and will blossom in time, propelled as much by acidity as tannin.
