2020 Bandicoot Run Pinot Noir
Exciting new wines out of Gippsland - notes from the makers:
This is the wine we have been looking toward since planting our new section of vineyard in 2017. Our baby. A good four years in the making but good things come to those who wait. 7 clones of Pinot Noir, picked in the early in the morning (in one case a block was picked from 4:30am to midday) to ensure the fruit came into the winery in the best possible condition. Gently destemmed (whole berry) with between 8 and 14 days on skins. Each clone fermented separately and then basket pressed and combined into 4 old barrels. Absolutely minimal handling during all stages of the winemaking.
