Gentle Folk - 2019 Little Creek Pinot Noir
Two of the country's leading experts in seaweed(!), Gareth and Rainbo Belton craft small lots of wildly expressive wines in the Basket Range. This '19 Pinot Noir is from the Little Creek vineyard in Nortin Summit, dry grown and farmed organically with some biodynamic practices. Whole clusters were wild fermented in open top vessels, then 11 months in French and Austrian oak barriques and puncheons (25% new wood). Dark 'n deep with a soft silken texture that sails down your throat. Crushed petals and earthy decay on the nose, pure fruit on the palate with a wet earth oomph underneath. Hello Winter.
