Details

"From a powerful year, Michael Glover has produced a heroic wine with his third Mammoth – a wine that is as savoury as it is deep and layered... In short, Mammoth 2015 is a structured, textural Pinot with a cracking mouthfeel and an abundance of fine tannins. It is clearly the most telling release from this producer to date...

Even with the minimal extraction, the Mammoth 2015 Pinot Noir is a dark and brooding Pinot with fabulous depth, power and length. There's serious concentration but the wine remains bright and savoury with a certain bloody, sappy core (the latter more oak than stem derived) and an abundance of fine tannins. An absolutely brilliant expression of Pinot Noir from the Upper Moutere hills which will be even better with time in the bottle or now with the right food (MG rightly recommends rabbit)."
