Ooh La La Noir
Made from Pinot Noir
"It's uh, it's thin-skinned, temperamental, ripens early. It's, you know, it's not a survivor like Cabernet, which can just grow anywhere and uh, thrive even when it's neglected. No, Pinot needs constant care and attention."
That was Paul Giammatti's character's description of Pinot Noir from the seminal Sideways. Doesn't really apply to this. This is a Pinot that parties on the beach, passes out, wakes up with sand in its shorts, and does it all over again.
- Raspberries and other red fruit
- Bouquet of petals with some lip-smacking salinity
- 3.5 weeks of carbonic maceration, then stored in stainless steel to retain the wine's natural energy
About the producer
One a farmer and the other a musician, husband and wife team Andrew and Louise moved to Mount Gambier (Andrew’s childhood town) to start a family and a wine label. They wanted to harness their knowledge in organic farming and permaculture to create a wine label that inspires home-grown eating, drinking, and music that nourishes the land and reflects their personalities - all to share with their community.
Andrew and Louise use old world wine methods - preferring the challenges of hand picking fruit, open fermenting with indigenous yeast, and only adding sulphur when required by the wine. They do not filter or fine their wines and they are all bottled on site in their small winery. Their aim is to produce great tasting unique wines expressing the unique cool, volcanic terroir above anything else.
