2020 Karriview Pinot Noir
Hand picked fruit. 100% whole bunches. Wild fermented in open top fermenters. Foot stomped and hand plunged. Matured on lees in 100% French oak barriques for 12 months. A sublime Pinot Noir from dry grown old vines that deliver concentration, finesse and intense fruit. A tight line of mineral acidity is specked with pomegranate, nutmeg and truffle. This wine belies a warmer vintage displaying restrained red currants and sour red cherry. The tannins are supple, savoury & supportive and harness multiple layers that are overshadowed by the damp undergrowth of a karri forest floor. Only 100 dozen made.
