Shapeshifter - 2019 Red Pinot Noir
A side project by one of the most benevolent humans around – Andy Burchell of Good Intentions Wine Co. This Shapeshifter red tastes exactly as it sounds: it shifts, morphs and mingles in your mouth, determined to elude definition. Pretty funky, ultra moreish. Tastes a bit floral with some (maybe) hazelnuts and (maybe) damp pine forest floor. 100% Pinot Noir from Andy's organically farmed vineyard (all MV6 / mothervine clone), growing in the rich volcanic soils of Mount Gambier. All fruit was destemmed, wild fermented and stored in puncheon on full lees for 8 months. Bottled unfined / unfiltered with very minimal sulphites added (max 20ppm). This is the kind of wine that drowns your expectations of Pinot, in a very playful way.
