2020 Konpira Maru Over and Over
Notes from team Konpira:
Picked on the 19th of April and fermented in Konpira HQ after soaking on skins at 4C for 4 days with two light daily plunges. As normal, the ferment achieved a low level of volatility during the initial stages which was transformed/integrated during peak ferment activity leading to a pinot of layers and a beautiful forest funk. It's just a delicious drop from the Quarry Ridge Vineyard. Hyper cool climate from the site that brings us Gymkata Syrah, Admiral Ackbar Semillon and Icarus Cab Merlot, this wine shares the cool climate benefits that these wines enjoy too. Lovely tannin, underlying berry flavours and a heap of spice.
