2018 Nunc Pinot Gris
|Producer||Nunc. Yarra Valley, Vic|
|Status||Organic in-conversion with Australian Certified Organic (ACO)|
This young Yarra Valley label is sourced and crafted by Arfion maestro Dave Mackintosh. The name is taken from the famous line by the Latin poet Horace, “Nunc est bibendum” [now is the time for drinking].
|Wine||All fruit were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The lion’s share of fruit was naturally co-fermented in tank, with each parcel added in stages so as to extend the length of the fermentation and enhance the flavour and mouthfeel. Then, a little lower Yarra Pinot Gris was destemmed and fermented on skins for 20 days to extract a little flavour, tannin and colour. After wild alcoholic fermentation the berries were pressed to old barrels to go through natural malolactic fermentation. There were no additions at all, save for a little sulphur at bottling.|
|Tasting Note||Savoury – Grippy – Textural|
