Mondillo 2010 Pinot Noir & 2011 Rieslings

04-Aug-2011
Domenic and Ally Mondillo planted 10 ha of Pinot Noir and 2 ha of Riesling in their Bendigo site in Central Otago, established in 2001. From their first release in 2004, success has come their way, gold medals consistently for their Mondillo Pinot Noir, the highlight being the ‘Champion Wine of the Show' at the 2010 Royal Easter Show Wine Awards with their 2008 vintage Pinot Noir. Domenic, originally a restaurateur turned viticulturist tended the Gibbston Valley vineyards until the start of last year when he went out on his own. His total focus has resulted in even finer fruit, which is made into wine by Central Otago winemaker doyen Rudi Bauer. I had a preview of the 2010 Pinot Noir at a Zibibbo wine-matched cooking demo recently. (Click here to read my comments.) Here are my full reviews of the latest releases. www.mondillo.com
