2021 Gentle Folk Little Creek Pinot Noir - Adelaide HillsRegular price $65.00
We say it every year, this has to be one of the most beautiful vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. It's close-planted and has been unirrigated for over 20 years. Low rainfall and cool ripening has resulted in a savoury wine with power and perfume.
"This one from Little Creek.
Earthy and savoury, a bit dusty and quite autumnal, truffle and dark cherry with a bit of rugged tannin chiming in. It feels a bit grubby, albeit that sounds bad, but it isn’t, it’s just got this kind of washy, wild, brambly and undergrowth thing going on and the finish is tasting earth. Gritty in a way, muddy in a way. Savoury, let’s say. Has some mojo but of an ilk."
