2017 Momento Mori 'Reserve Red'
Grape/s: Pinot Noir
The cuvee is named "Reserve Red" because it"s probably as far away from a typical Australian "Reserve Red" as you will get (intentionally of course), and I always found that term amusing and antiquated. It is always of a very high quality though and has extended time on elevage and in bottle which may be the only two conceived similarities. While it is Pinot for sure it is also edgy and somewhat unique. It is elegant but complex, pure and earthy at the same time and has a very ethereal nature about it.
