CHARLOTTE DALTON - A CHANGE IS COMING PINOT NOIR 2021
After a year of experimenting, we’re excited to introduce you to our boldest Pinot. This Pinot is an explosion of aromas. The nose is raspberry, sarsaparilla, sage, capsicum, cherry, hazelnut. Sometimes more, and sometimes less. The palate is a ride. A big lot of primary fruits, berries, cherries, other delicious red things. Then there is a move into the more serious side with a nutty, spicy element. Nice length with spice carrying through to the end This note is hard to write as this wine is a different journey of excitement every time I drink it! The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered with the only addition being a small amount of sulphur prior to bottling.

GRAPES Pinot Noir
I love wine. I have been making wine all over the world for close to two decades. I have been drinking wine all over the world for longer. I love how I feel when I walk through vineyards. I love the journey of turning grapes into wine. I love to watch the personalities develop in every single barrel and I love to observe the effect of the years passing on bottles of wine. To drink my friend's wines brings me so much pleasure as does discovering wines from artists and places that I don't know.
I think wine can be felt. I get so much joy making the Charlotte Dalton wines that surely, you will feel joy when you drink them. I firmly believe that a wine must be made with a happy heart and a content soul. And that is, simply, why I make the Charlotte Dalton Wines; to bring me joy, happiness and contentedness and to share and hopefully pass those feelings on to you through the wines.
In case you were wondering; Dalton is my middle name and was my Grandfather Hardy's christian name. When my 3 brothers and I were little children, my amazing and dearly missed mother, used to tuck us into bed at night and say "love you, love me - love me, love you"
