Product Description

Cropped from a specific half-acre plot of the Merricks Grove vineyard, Terre de Feu (the land of fire) takes its name from the vein of pure red ferrosol soils of this plot. Several years ago Barney noticed that the vines in this little ironstone buttonhole were producing slightly smaller bunches, yielding wines of greater depth and concentration than the surrounding vineyard. Thus the decision was taken to produce this micro cuvée. The power of the fruit enables a 100% whole-bunch ferment and Terre de Feu remains Garagiste's first and only Pinot made this way. The wine also sees a little more new oak and is released later. From what Flanders calls the vintage of a lifetime, you'd be right to expect some fireworks here. Right now the wine is a deep cauldron of flavour, featuring intense dark fruits, brown spices and campfire complexity oscillating around a deep, pulsating core of sappy, bunchy freshness and fine structure. It still needs time (or the right food) but it has everything in place to make it superb drinking over many years to come. Don't miss it.
