2020 Little Reddie Malmsbury Pinot Noir
The final release of this wine... :(
A very delicate and pretty expression of northern Macedon Pinot. 100% whole bunch, as always. Sealed up in stainless steel for 8 days, drained around day 6 to keep the fermenting juice off stalks. Very gently pressed to stainless and allowed to ferment vigorously to dryness. Three french hogsheads of varying ages were filled. Flavours are bright, tart, salty and sweet. Strawberry jam, fresh mulberries, blue cheese, brown toast, lots of herbaceous greens, sliced fennel and fennel tops too. There is grip but its loose knit and gentle.
