MOUNTFORD ESTATE THE RISE PINOT NOIR NORTH CANTERBURY 18/19
The RIse is a powerful Pinot Noir, one of the two top Pinots from Mountford Estate's steepest, limestone laden slopes on the hill behind the winery. Long aging time and beautiful ripe fruit express themselves in this impressively full bodied wine with its dark fruit richness and complex layers of spice.
Mountford Estate was established in 1991 by Buffy and Michael Eaton who chose the site in Waipara for its elevation and active limestone soils. The wines are made by CP Lin, who has worked in the vineyard and winery since the early days when he became a close friend of the Eatons and a devotee of this great vineyard site and region. The winery is now owned by a Japanese investor.
