2018 Commune of Buttons Gloria Pinot Noir
|Producer||Commune of Buttons|
|Region||Adelaide Hills, SA|
Sophie and Jasper Button have only been making wine since 2013, but have garnered a huge amount of press and excitement in that short time. The siblings are lucky enough to be sourcing fruit from their own Mum’s vineyard, planted over 20 years ago to primarily Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and is now fully organic. They are involved in every step of the process, from herding the sheep in the vineyard to designing labels and bottling at the source.
|Wine||Gloria is the single vineyard Pinot Noir grown on the Buttons' Basket Range property. This was fermented in large open top Jarrah fermenters, aged for just six months in old oak then sent to stainless steel to settle before bottling. As with all of their wines, low intervention in the winery is the modus operandi. The only whisper of sulphur was added just after malo to ensure the wine's stability.|
|Tasting Note||Dark fruits - Earthy - Elegant|
