Margaret River

This comes from some of the oldest plantings of Pinot Noir in Margaret River. Low cropping 40 year old Pinot Noir planted in Karri loam over decomposed granite/white clay soils, grown biodynamically and harvested according to ripeness with a focus on natural acidity. Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in concrete eggs followed by eight months aging in old French oak barriques. Battonage for the first three months the wine was retained on lees until bottling. Made with no additives only a minimal sulphur addition at bottling. No fining or filtration.

All day drinking kind of vibe here – has a gentle sweetness that reminds you of sugared cereals and strawberry jam, but a lifted freshness that keeps the wine from overwhelming from the get go. Juicy, light, clean and refreshing to taste – a light skin contact red wine with some fine, bony, chalky tannins lending structure, but the general feel of a wine that’s meant for thoughtless drinking with gusto. Pure, delicate expression.
