2020 Pinot Noir
Pale garnet with a bright hue.
Perfumed bouquet dark plum, with hints of violet and sage.
Good intensity, with dark fruit notes, woody herbs and earth lead to abundant savoury/spicy characters. Subtle French oak and the earthy notes are balanced by fresh acidity and fine slightly sappy tannin firming up the finish.
Hand harvested fruit was destemmed, then fermented in small open-top pots, then pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation and matured in French oak barriques (10% new) for 11 months prior to bottling in February 2021.
Enjoy now or over the next 2 to 6 years.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
90 points, Halliday Wine Companion, Jeni port - 'Destemmed, fermented in small open-top pots using cultured yeast, mlf, matured in French oak barriques (10% new) for 11 months. A juicy little sip of joy right here, all crunchy red cherry and cranberry fruits encased in woodsy spice and earth. Fine, sinewy tannins keep things focused on the palate. Delivers on price and immediate, fresh drinkability.'
