Fancrest Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2015
The first of three super warm, drought vintages. 2015 delivered a crop significantly riper than in preceding vintages. We only made one barrel of this Reserve wine and it represents a single Pinot Noir clone. Made naturally with only one very small sulphite addition at the bottling line, this gorgeous generous Pinot Noir is beginning to show its potential. Lower acidity than we're used to has advanced maturity and made it approachable earlier than usual. 2 years in barrel and a further 1 in the cellar. Bottles may appear slightly cloudy if agitated as there has been minimal processing, no fining (suitable for vegans) and no filtration. A lovely season allowed us to bring in the handpicked harvest with fuller and richer than normal flavour. This wine has beautiful savoury notes making it an ideal match for game and meat, but equally suitable with dark fish and game birds. A long finish ensures maximum enjoyment.
