2020 Carafe and Tumbler Pinot Shiraz

(affectionally known here as Pinaz)

Vineyard

This is an estate grown red blend of 65% Pinot Noir (MV6 clone) and 35% Shiraz (PT23 clone) grown on our ancient grey clay soils in Coldstream, Yarra Valley.

Winemaking

The idea of the Carafe and Tumbler range is to create fun fruit driven wines to be enjoyed casually with friends with no fuss. We’re looking for a high yum factor and a drinkability that’s off the chart without being just simple cordial-like wine. With this blend, the Pinot brings the elegance and the Shiraz brings the spice. The fruit was harvested and immediately processed and fermented as several small lots with a combination of wild and inoculated yeasts. The wine has a large amount of whole bunch (around 30%) and it spent 10 months in large, seasoned French oak barrels in our cool underground cellar where it underwent a long slow wild malolactic fermentation. The wine was blended and bottled whilst still bright, fresh and lively.

Sensory Analysis

This wine is bright ruby and that brightness is mirrored in the sweet perfume of strawberries, orange peal, cocoa and green tea. It’s reminiscent of Italian bitters. The medium bodied palate is big in fruit and has an attractive slipperiness in the mouth before the acid and gentle tannins engage leaving the finish dry. There are flavours of rockmelon and cherries with warmed spice and roasted sesame. It’s a very moreish wine and the bottle tends to empty quickly. This is one for immediate enjoyment.
