Toolangi Pinot Noir 2018
The Toolangi Pinot was hand harvested from Toolangi’s 2001 plantings (MV6 clone grapes on the bottom of E Block), partially de-stemmed (50% whole bunches retained) and naturally fermented in open top wooden fermenters. In total, the wine spent 21 days on skins before being pressed to French oak (20% new) for eight months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Again, this is absolutely outstanding value. A bright, juby, perfumed and juicy Pinot. Expect a really fresh and vibrant personality with red cherry, raspberry fruit with lovely spice and a gentle, nettle-like twist on the surprisingly long and classy close. Bravo!
