2020 Arfion Full Moon Vineyard Pinot Noir
All 777 clone, all whole bunches.
A carbonic maceration kick off for fresssshness, then Dave M the winemaker jumps into the ferment and makes structure happen. “I’m more interested in savouriness than strawberry fruitiness, bunches give that fresh lift, and grip to drag it through”. Scents of Fernet, sarsaparilla, sour cherry characters. Exotic and wonderful. Supple texture, swish of soft tannin, sour cherry flavours and acidity keeping it all perky. Really lovely, gentle feel, quite delicate and very fresh with this ultra-appealing softness through and through. There’s a lot of charm here, and ease of drinking. Love that spice and savouriness.
