2016 Lithostylis Pinot Nouveau
|Region||South Gippsland, VIC|
|Status||Organic and Biodynamic practices|
Planted in 1997 current owners and vignerons Dean and Dayna Roberts purchased the property in 2006. Their mantra is to grow pristine fruit in the vineyard thus allowing them to do as little as possible in the winery. Minimal intervention winemaking, though not in a bloody-minded way. Organic and biodynamic practices are used, but if there is a need to intervene then Dean has no issue doing that to ensure the best quality fruit and wine is produced. A ‘hands off’ philosophy in the cellar; avoiding movements, additions and subtractions, unless absolutely necessary. No habitual formulas or recipes, just a sensitive and responsive attitude to “what the wine is trying to say” or “who the wine wants to be”.
|Wine||Strawberry, raspberry, mandarin and spice on the nose. Red berry fruits and citrus on the palate. Intense red fruit flavour gives way to a fresh and fine finish, with light but persistent tannins. Unfiltered to preserve full texture.|
|Tasting Note||Red berries - Spice - Vibrant|
