Run off and hide in a dark place with this like a dog with a stolen shoe. Oh boy, what an absolute treasure we have here!
The winemaking here is similar as with all the single vineyard Pinots, the expression of site the hero.
100% wild fermentation, 20% new oak from 27 year old vines off the highest TMBT vineyard perched at 206m above.
Savoury and fruit character elope in unison here. Divine.
Take a whiff and it's measured. Some smoke, pepper, spice, dark cherry, even a suggestion of five spice. Red fruits come into the fray when things find their niche. There's power yet it's tempered by the wine's own elegance. It's a slow burn - sip and consider. Sip again and behold.
I looked at this over a couple of nights and I've been hit for six. Incredible. Walk over broken glass to find it - the sold out sign has already been posted online mind you.
Drink now to ten years.
