2020 Gentle Folk Little Creek Pinot Noir
A mix of organic and biodynamic farmed Pinot Noir from vines planted in the Little Creek and Norton Summit vineyards in 1987 and 1990.
A combination of separate whole cluster and destemmed fermentations, eight months in French oak barriques, 20% new. Bottled under Diam and sealed with wax.
This has to be one of the most beautiful vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. It's close planted, and has been unirrigated for over 20 years. The season's low rainfall and cool ripening has resulted in a savoury wine with immense power and perfume.
