MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2018

Secure the 2018 Pinot Noir en primeur...

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2017

Secure the 2017 Pinot Noir en primeur...

MOUNT TERRIBLE ROSE 2018

This wine, the first Rose from Mount Terrible, was made from fully ripe Pinot noir grapes, basket-pressed to tank with no skin contact, then coloured by the addition of 7% Pinot of the same vintage. Bright salmon-pink, with rose and strawberry aromas, this delicate Rose exhibits a lively crisp palate with a refreshingly dry finish. It is made to be drunk young. Don't even think of cellaring it. 

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2016

Secure the 2016 Pinot Noir en primeur...

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2015

Nobody thinks their child is ugly and it is my preference to let others coin phrases to describe my wine, but: colour red-purple, intense cherry and plum fruit, soft, lingering tannins, the best wine we have yet produced. Rating 97 ~ James Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

Case of 12 X 750ML bottles

MOUNT TERRIBLE CHARDONNAY 2015

Made, as before, from Delatite's grapes, this Chardonnay was barrel-fermented using cultured yeast. The wine has seen ten months in 50/50 new and two year French oak, with extended lees contact and periodic lees stirring. It was not put through malolactic fermentation and was ranked three times and cold settled but not filtered. Tasting of citrus and apples with a restrained backbone of oak, it will be available from July 2016.

SOLD OUT

MOUNT TERRIBLE CHARDONNAY 2014

Something of a departure for Mount Terrible, this wine was made from Chardonnay grapes purchased from Delatite Vineyard. Barrel fermented with a cultured rather than a wild yeast,  the wine was not put through malolactic fermentation. It was racked three times over the eight months it spend in a new Taransaud barrique and was cold settled but not filtered. Only 22 cases were made; upon release in December 2015 they sold out within six weeks.

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2014

"A bolshy Pinot Noir with a ton of personality, this Alpine expression is hewn from low yields, maceration pre and post ferment with a seasoning of stems and eighteen months in French Oak. Rich and mooreish, with Damson Plum, mulch and cedar combining into a textural whole. The intensity of flavour is compelling as are the layers all auguring well for a bright future....Rating 95." Ned Goodwin: James Halliday Wine Companion 2018.

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2013

James Halliday: "From estate-grown 115, 777 and MV6 clones, the must was cold soaked for 5 days with 10% whole bunch inclusion, post-fermentation maceration followed by 18 months maturation in one third each new, 1 yo and 2 yo French barriques. A powerful, impeccably balanced pinot, flush with red and black cherry fruit, with a gold-plated future. 95 points.”

 

SOLD OUT

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2012

A small vintage but of excellent quality...

'Provides a clear picture of the future of the '13 with flowery, spicy aromatics and a clean-shaven palate of dark cherry and plum fruits bedecked with fine savoury foresty tannings and a very long, expansive finish' James Halliday 95 pts. 13.5% alc. 

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2011

James Halliday: “Light crimson-purple hue; a courageous approach to the problematic vintage; the bouquet is most attractive, and there are light globes of sweet cherry on the light-bodied, savoury/spicy palate. Definitely passes the test. Rating 90.“

 

SOLD OUT

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2010

James Halliday: “From clones (114, 115, 777 and MV6) cold soaked (with 20% whole bunches) for five days before open fermentation, then eighteen months in French oak. The colour is still youthful and bright, with no hint of bricking; the bouquet is building spicy perfume along with still-primary fruit, the palate supple and fine, a hint of forest floor on the after-taste adding to the palate. Still has years of life. Screw cap. 14% alcohol. Rating 95.“

SOLD OUT ~ Individual bottles available in Vertical Tasting half~cases.

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2008

This wine, made from a second parcel of grapes picked in the hot summer of 2008, was not released under our own label until this year. While not up to the standard of the Ian Ridley Reserve, it has come on remarkably in bottle, and is the house Pinot at Cumulus and Gill’s in Melbourne and The Delatite Hotel in Mansfield.

 

SOLD OUT

MOUNT TERRIBLE IAN RIDLEY RESERVE PINOT NOIR 2008

James Halliday: “Bright, clear crimson; while relatively light-bodied, the wine delivers an expressive and complex bouquet of spiced dark berries, a message continued on the long, well-balanced palate. Delicious drinking now if you are so minded. Rating 94.“

 

SOLD OUT ~ Individual bottles available in Vertical Tasting half~cases.

MOUNT TERRIBLE PINOT NOIR 2006

James Halliday: “Excellent retention of red-purple hue; new generation French clones and MV6, plus sophisticated wine making have produced a very pure, highly focused razor sharp Pinot Noir, with a long palate and varietal definition. 95 points.“

 

SOLD OUT ~ Individual bottles available in Vertical Tasting half~cases.
