2018 Nikau Tolone
Notes from Dane, the farm owner, grower and maker..:
As with the Nikau Pinot the aim here is to do as little as possible and let the fruit be what it wants to be. There were 48 hours of skin contact with a very light maceration. By emitting the skins totally I feel that you are losing some of the story and terroir. The wine seems very refined. It is a dainty 9% alcohol but you wouldn’t know it, It has incredible structure and presence. There is nothing added to the wine at any stage of the process. It is as pure as it gets.
