Stoney Rise Holyman Pinot Noir 2011
The wine was made from 40% whole bunches and wild yeast fermented. New (30%) French oak was used with the remainder a mix of one and two year old.
A striking sweet and sour sensational took hold of me with this wine. It was tremendously delicious. Raspberries deluxe, cherries, a hint of vanilla with some subtle pepper. Powdery tannins to finish. Wow.
Good to go now and still plenty left in it to last a few more years yet.
Quality Pinot is not cheap. This is a great example of that fact.
