2016 Lucy Margaux Little Creek Pinot Noir
The self described wild man of the Australian wine industry is back in the house. We've been drinking these wines since way before DRNKS even existed. Anton works in a truly minimal sense. He works with vineyards all over the Adelaide Hills, all farmed on an organic basis. He works very closely with the Buttons siblings, and most of his fruit comes from them. Little Creek Vineyard is a small 10 acre block of 114, 115 and 777 Pinot Noir tendered by Suzie Morris and Nigel Hopkins. This Norton Summit hillside has a view to the ocean and is warmed by the long afternoon Adelaide sun. The vines exposure and humidity from the ocean is critically important to pinot noir as it softens the wine.
