Tolpuddle - 2020 Pinot Noir - 750ml - Tasmania, Australia
This wine has gorgeous aromatics with violets and red berries to the fore.
There is abundant fruit, with sour cherry, raspberry, blueberry, and a touch of rhubarb. Underlying savory characters include graphite and cured meat, and some toasted spices. Medium weight, with very fine tannins. Fresh and enticing, perfumed and delicious.
All hand-picked fruit is fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches, in open wooden and stainless fermenters, with gentle plunging. Aged in French oak for ten months, of which about one third was new.
