Beautiful ripe strawberries, raspberries, cranberries and sweet spice on the nose, with subtle hints of forest floor and wild mushrooms. It is an excellent combination of old meets new world!
Mr P Pinot Noir 2023
Mr P is fresh with vibrant acidity and a long textured, savoury finish.
We kept the vinification process for Mr P Pinot Noir traditional. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and fermented using whole berries. To add some complexity, 10% of the bunches were whole bunch fermented. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 28ºC, with regular punch downs. When fermentation was complete, the wine was pressed into 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels where they underwent MLF. After 11 months in barrel, the wine was racked and bottled.
Mr P's Poem
In case you don’t know a great deal about Pinot
We have just the man with his feather, hat and bow.
Good old Mr. P with a nose for the best
He truly knows his pinot’s he’ll put yours to the test.
With a feather in his pocket and notebook in hand, he slowly sips his glass;
They hope it’s not too bland.
He raises his brow and has a look around.
He gives a subtle wink, the wine makers have done him proud
As Mr. P has no time to chat,
he casually walks away with a feather in his hat.
