Minimal intervention, lightweight Pinot Noir made in tiny quantities.
After our swan song vintage of 2017, this could be titled Slight Return. The majority of the Pinot Noir has been pulled out at the Port Campbell Vineyard, but we were still able to obtain 600kg or so, translating to 2 barrels, which makes just under 50 dozen. It may well be the best Pinot we have ever made from the site though! Weighing in under 13% alcohol, it is by no means a lightweight. In fact I think it has the structure to develop well over many years.
Blue fruits, spice, signature acidity, with real drive behind it. The production of this wine required no additions of any kind – no yeasts, no enzymes, no extra acid, tannin or any of that stuff – just minimal Sulphur Dioxide. Eat your heart out naturalistas!
