Description

No reserve on this auction.

Torii Mor make some surprisingly burgundian Pinot Noirs in a drier more savoury style than is typical from west coast USA.

Pommard clones from the Alloro Vineyard (30.77%) and the Arbre Vert Vineyard (23.08%). Hansell, 777, 667 and 114 clones from the Hawkes View Vineyard (46.15%). 15% is aged in new French oak, 25% in one-year-old barrels, 15% in two-year-old barrels, and the rest in old neutral oak barrels. 328 cases.

Quite a lot of development at the rim and a tinge of tea-leaf at the core. A warming welcoming nose – cloves and orange peel and plums. Cranberry fruit with a little nub of spiky acidity which gives the wine a rather snappy profile and a crackle in the mouth. There is palate weight here without any fat. Christmas spices and dried fruit giving depth, with just the merest tannins, like a tap on the reins. Somehow snug, and a wine that makes me think of a big open-hearth fireplace and roasting chestnuts. JancisRobinson
