This delicious and perfectly aged Pinot from Mountford is made from grapes grown in neighbouring vineyards and from other local growers in the Waipara region. The hallmarks of Mountford Pinot Noir are evident as it shows great power on the palate with a fleshy texture and excellent length and finesse.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Our Liaison Pinot Noir is made by uniting all the traditional elements of Terrior; land, climate, vines, people and culture. Hand harvested and matured in oak barrels, this is a delightfully complex Pinot Noir with remarkable structure."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Superior to many $45 Pinot Noirs, the 2016 vintage is full of personality and an irresistible buy. Estate-grown at Waipara, it was hand-picked, mostly from vines planted in 2009, matured in French oak casks, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby, it is highly fragrant, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with generous cherry, plum, spice, herb and nut flavours, complex and savoury. A finely structured red, delicious now, it should also be drinking well up to 2023."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2020 (2016 Vintage)
"Seductively complex and engaging, the wine shows sweet berry, smoked game, dried herb and toasted spice notes on the nose, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate is both elegant and flavoursome. It's silky, flowing and refined with gorgeous savoury nuances, finishing splendidly long and appealing. At its best: now to 2024."
