Oakridge Lusatia Park Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 Magnum
A traditional wine making approach was used to produce this wine – whole berry fermentation in open vessels for two weeks followed by an 10 month maturation in French oak barrels.
A wine of smoke and sinew. It’s ripped with bright, ripe, sweet-sour fruit but the character is in the fringe, the tail, the woodlands beyond the field of berries. There’s a purpose to this wine that is immediately apparent, and never wavers. The run of undergrowth and tobacco flavour to the finish is the perfect icing. Gorgeous drinking. Value is the added bonus.
