2015 BLOCK E PINOT NOIR

HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION, 2018 Edition

The Toolangi Pinots are all MV6 clone and matured in French oak, this with one-third each whole berry, whole bunch and crushed/destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented, matured for 18 months with 30% new oak. This takes a millisecond to imprint the bouquet and palate with its sheer intensity, complexity and length. Its siblings are very, very good (and very different), but this is in a league of its own. Spices and savoury, foresty notes are all important, but don't imperil the fruit. A glorious salute to the vintage, and the very best grapes from the estate. Rating 98.
