2021 Bull Swamp
Notes from big William.
This dry grown vineyard was planted in 1981 on old, red volcanic soils at 150m elevation. There are four separate parcels of Pinot Noir, two north facing blocks of MV6 and another of Abel, as well as a more sheltered south facing block of MV6. The nose is earthy and dense with blackcurrant, blueberry and cherry fruit aromas. The palate shows more berry fruits as well as struck match, rusted iron, wood spice and pomegranate molasses.
