Shadowfax Pinot Noir 2019Back To Our Hampers
Shadowfax Pinot Noir 2019Macedon Ranges, VIC $35
Established in 1998, Shadowfax is located just 30 minutes from Melbourne in the heart of Werribee Park. This Pinot is produced on a single vineyard site at Little Hampton near Trentham, which sits at 730m above sea level and is one of the coolest in the Macedon Ranges. Deep red volcanic loams, over hard basalt outcrops, gives Little Hampton a unique balance between aromatics and power.
This elegant Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir has spice aromas including cardamom, cinnamon, sandalwood and citrus blossom. Mulberries and blackberries give lift in the glass, as do violets with hints of blood orange.
Blackberries and spice appear fill the palate. The generous palate has breadth and expanse, yet shows poise from seams of grown ripe tannins. There are complexities galore with sandalwood and Campari spice interacting with brooding fruits and violet nuances. The palate is long and persistent yet light on its feet, bringing you back for more. A fine example of cool climate, high altitude Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir.
