’16 ISLA RESERVE PINOT NOIR
$69.00 – $828.00
$69 per bottle
A new member of the Mount Michael Family – both in wine and in namesake. Isla is our Premium Reserve Pinot Noir and is named after a granddaughter made in the same vintage.
Made with pristine fruit from the Bendigo, the hottest Sub-region in Central Otago this boutique wine has a firm nose of ripe, dark red fruits with herbaceous elements that unfold into nutty and distinctive oak aromas. Rich and luscious on the palate with concentrated dark berries, plum and liquorice, fine tannins and balanced acidity. This is a serious Pinot Noir, a treat to drink now but your patience will be rewarded with further cellaring.
Only 115 cases of this wine were made and spent 12 months in French oak before further cellaring for release in April 2019.
