The Bare Touch Slinky Bare Pinot Noir (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Winemaker: Aaron Mercer
Summary: The Bare Touch wines are made by Cowpunk winemaker Aaron Mercer using early picked grapes, free run juice and a “hands off” non intervention approach. The grapes are naturally lower in alcohol and with far less skin contact than a traditional red wine, the free run juice is bright and vibrant with significantly lower tannins. The hands off winemaking approach allows the fruit to express itself fully whilst building complexity. The result is a range of fresh and elegant wines with a sleek, supple mouthfeel that are perfect to be served with a moderate chill or straight from the fridge.
Winemaking: Early picked at flavour ripeness, ensuring naturally lower alcohol and fresh balanced acidity. Fruit is crushed, juice fermented on skins and pressed prior to sugar dryness with wine completing fermentation in stainless steel. Minimal handling ensures less tannin extraction, creating a soft, rounded finish with a fruit forward palate.
Tasting Note: Light red hues, with raspberry and cherry spice aromas. The palate is light to mid bodied in style, with slick refined varietal tannins, finishing crisp and refreshing.
