About this Item

Windansea Pinot Noir, 2020
36 (6 x 6) 750ml

“It’s been a great journey for us as a family coming into the valley, starting to discover it. We always say that we are learning more and more from the vineyards that we farm. That’s basically the approach we take with our winemaking as well: it’s just to never stop learning.” - Gordon Newton Johnson

100% Pinot Noir

This is a bare-bones glimpse of Windansea, the power dimension to Pinot Noir on our farm. In the stoniest and most clay-rich of our granite soils, the bunches were selectively picked by the family for this small cuvée. Made without sulphur in the winemaking, allowing diverse micro-organisms from the grape itself to flourish unrestrained in the fermentation, enhancing complexity. 11 months’ maturation with a further six months’ élevage in large oak. Unfiltered, it will age over many years in bottle.

Tasting Notes: A lavish wine, saturated with blackberry, liquorice and rich red currants. Lingering impressions of soft spice and freshly turned earth. Bountiful and seamless tannin texture in to a chalky finish.

Ready for drinking in 2 to 15 years’ time.
