MAGNUM – 2017 Myrtle Point Pinot Noir – 1.5L
Small batch winemaking combining traditional methods with some use of wild yeasts and whole bunch ferments. French oak maturation. Bright cherry and plum fruit layered with savoury, earthy elements. Bottled unfiltered. 100% Estate grown, made and bottled.
“Hand-picked, a portion (30% of the total wine) had 30% whole bunches included, open-fermented, hand-plunged, pressed to French oak (15% new). Light colour, but no want of flavour or drive. Satsuma plum and red cherry fruit threaded with tendrils of spicy, savoury palate and tannins.” 94 Points – 2020 Halliday Wine Companion
