Wine review – McCrae Mist Pinot Noir

McCrae Mist Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir 2015
Dan Murphy’s currently lists this little-known Mornington pinot at $17.99 a bottle, or $17.09 as part of a six-bottle buy – though the vintage isn’t stated online. Our bottle remained on the tasting bench for four days and it impressed without degradation throughout. We gained the impression of considerable whole-bunch influence – that is, stemmy–stalky characters accompanied by silky texture – though we’ve not verified the origins of that character with the maker. It worked well, though, seasoning the delicious underlying fruit and adding to the wine’s solid structure. Overall, an enjoyable pinot of some character.
