2017 Hot Shot Pinot Noir
Goes well with Truffles
Wines with earthy, mushroom notes go well with the savoury characters of truffle.
This wine is a blend of only two barrels. One barrel was made from fruit that was 100% whole bunch fermented and the other was 50% whole bunch. The style of fermentation creates a wine with beautiful perfume, structure, and complexity. The wines were basket pressed (which prevents too much of the green tannin being extracted from the stalks) and matured in oak for 15 months.
This is a beautiful, complex and understated pinot noir. It has beautiful richness and purity of varietal character with classic cherry and plum aromatics. These are enhanced and complemented by, earthy, mushroom, forest floor characters. The palate has fine stalky tannins, amazing depth and concertation and lovely balanced acidity.
