2018 Nunc Pinot Noir
|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||Mixed region fruit was all hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. All fruit was handpicked and naturally fermented in open fermenters, with some carbonic ferments; approximately 30% whole bunches made up the final blend. Following pressing, most of the vineyards were blended to go through natural malolactic fermentation and ageing on lees in tank. Approximately 20% of the blend saw some old wood. The result is a savoury, amaro and tea leaf-inflected Pinot, with lifted notes of red cherry, raspberry and rose leading to a palate that is juicy and bright, medium-bodied, and with a deliciously smoky-spicy close. Terrific value for money. 13% ABV.|
|Tasting Note||Red cherry - Spicy - Juicy|
