100% Pinot Noir from the Celeste vineyard, Whitlands, King Valley, Victoria. The OG vineyard in the Whitlands planted by the legendary Dr Jim Hardie, this gem of a spot has been managed organically by us since 2016.
All wines are fermented outside, just metres from the vines, to encourage as wild a ferment as possible; a nod to, and extension of, the pied de cuve technique we saw back in the day in Priorat, Spain.
This Pinot Noir, fully wild fermented, undergoes gentle daily plunging to aid extraction of the soft tannins but to retain the panoply of subtle aromatics generated by the vineyard and vinification technique.
A subtle and elegant Pinot, one for the purists. Black forest fruits and forest undergrowth which will open in the glass over time. Light and delicate but with concentration coming through in the mid palate and a persistent finish. Best enjoyed with pork neck steak, grilled brussel sprouts with a light cranberry jus. 12% abv.
