Garagiste Merricks Pinot Noir 2018

Sourced from the Merricks Grove vineyard, the fruit for this wine was hand-sorted twice and fermented in two ways: one fermenter of whole berries and another of 100% whole bunches.

Product Description

Sourced from the Merricks Grove vineyard, the fruit for this wine was hand-sorted twice and fermented in two ways: one fermenter of whole berries and another of 100% whole bunches. These two portions were then blended together. Both fermentations were natural with a reasonably long maceration and yet gentle extraction--light pump-overs and a few gentle plunges. The wine matured in 300-litre hogsheads (roughly 20% new, François Frères) and spent eleven months on lees before bottling, unfiltered. It's a supple and savoury expression of the shire, dangerously drinkable from start to finish. Expect a juicy personality packed with spiced cherry, grenadine, subtle nettle and classy wood spice leading to a lingering, perfumed finish and a lick of fine tannin.

"Twiggy, floral, spicy, light and red fruited. The tannin here is particularly good, with a firmness and dusty grip that's so pleasing to feel. It has light, energy, and a heap of charm and interest, a slight cherry lolly flavour, and a solid finish, that perhaps holds it back from taking home an even higher score. I like its style." 93+ points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
