Pinot Noir ‘Peninsula’, Crittenden 2019
Fragrant and aromatic with red berry and floral notes.
It walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and more complex.
The grapes were hand harvested and immediately destemmed to small open fermenters without crushing. Cold soak for four days prior to the commencement of the ferment. After a natural (wild yeast) ferment, the wine was pressed off skins at dryness to a mixture of two, three and four year old French oak barrels for 9 months.
Why we love this:
Juicy and joyful, yet complex and serious at the same time.
