2018 Holyman Pinot Noir
Serious Pinot business here.
Light in colour, but full of flavour. Typical forest floor and hints of cranberry and red cherry. The palate has all of the hallmark red-fruits, hints of mushroom and a complexing smoky oak edge. The chalky tannin from the whole bunch component perfectly compliments the fresh fruits. Whilst this wine is slightly more fruit forward than the usual style it's built to last. 60% whole bunch 30% new French oak 100% Estate grown - vines planted in 1986. Non-irrigated vines. No additions except for minimal sulphur. No fining or filtration.
