DILWORTH & ALLAIN - PINCHA 2021
Essentially this wine drinks like a red, albeit a very fruit driven, aromatic red wine which is light to medium body and refreshing/satisfying! Offering flavours of cherries, alpine strawberries and brown cooking spice. This wine will reward being served with a slight chill.
ORIGIN Macedon Ranges, Australia

GRAPES 60% Pinot Noir 40% Chardonnay
"Koo de food" A blend of Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir (60%) and Western Victorian Chardonnay (40%). In various forms, we have been producing a blend of this nature since 2017. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are 2 varieties which always create so much interest and discussion. We love the way they work together, a real family connection!
The two varieties were fermented separately and then blended. The Chardonnay was fermented in tank and the Pinot Noir was fermented with a small amount of whole bunch. Elevage was in a 50/50 mix of French barriques and tank. Bottled in late January unfined, unfiltered, with no other additives other than a small amount of Sulphur Dioxide before ferment and before bottling.
