Summary: Wild Folk - the natural choice in wine - are pure expressions of the variety and the vineyard. Minimal intervention in the winery ensures a joyful glass of just what mother nature intended. Wild yeast fermented, no additions, vegan friendly, preservative free, unfined and unfiltered, nothing but fermented grapes at their finest.
Winemaking: A less is more regime in the vineyard and the winery has resulted in a fresher more uncompromising wine stylistically. Handpicked and sorted and then added to open fermenters before undergoing plunging. Consigned to stainless steel after fermentation this wine was bottled shortly after with little additions and was neither fined nor filtered.
Vintage 2022: After a wet and windy spring (and the resulting poor fruit set), winemakers approached the 2022 vintage with trepidation. However, after Christmas the weather turned clear and warm with perfect harvesting conditions. Cool nights allowed fruit to retain bright natural acidity, and fruit flavours are pure and bold.
Tasting Note: A fresh drink now natural Pinot Noir that is all about the purity of fruit. Elegant and seductively smooth on the nose and palate with varietal cherry and savoury notes followed by gentle acidity on the finish. Perfect drink now style that would pair well with a truffled risotto.
