2018 Les Fruits Parachute
Tim Stock is a legendary importer and distributor who has always made a bit of wine on the side. This is getting a bit more serious now, notes from him: Richly layered juice from Parachute Block at Whisson Lake. The highest steepest parcel. Generous to a fault. 3 barrels. 50% whole bunches too but fed into the juice and berries rather than sitting underneath it. Well if ‘Noir’ is Chambertin then this is Musigny. My God soooo pretentious! Seriously though this rises up from the glass with its ripe red and blue fruit and warm spices then floods the palate with the same notes layered with a fine structure for a long pleasure ride through the splendour of good Pinot. Did I really make this?
