I rather like these Mount Monument wines. Please, small Macedon Ranges producers, send me all of your delicious wares. This Mount Monument Pinot Noir 2018 is a big wine for Macedon too, which is always a surprise. The vineyard itself is owned by Melbourne architect Nonda Katsalidis.
Stewed rhubarb, raspberry, cooked eggplant and a whiff of pepper. It’s a big wine, but not bulky. Like. It’s just a little bit raw to finish, but that’s the trade-off for a welcome dose of ripe fruit. Good, fuller-flavoured Pinot. Best drinking: I like it now. 18/20, 93/100. 14%,$45.
