2022 Ochota Barrels Mark of Cain Pinot Meunier - Adelaide Hills, SARegular price $44.00
When you were a child, do you remember "red" bullets? Instead of liquorice inside dark chocolate, there was raspberry (a bit like red rope liquorice). Rich raspberry flavours wrapped up inside dark chocolate. Thats what this tastes like. Towards the back of the palate, the flavours broaden a little with hints of the left field tropical...like guava & paw paw.
Planted in 1985 in the heart of the Piccadilly Valley. Handpicked mid-March, wild open ferment. Destemmed with whole bunches and a few handfuls of stalks added back. Gentle cap submersion by hand once a day for 7-10 days. Pressed to seasoned french barriques. Unfined and unfiltered. No additions besides minimal so2
