Coulter Wines C3 Pinot Noir 2018

From a single vineyard in Balhannah in the Adelaide Hills, MV6 Clone - for those that way inclined. It's 100% Whole Bunch, sees a 3 day carbonic maceration, and is bottled unfined with a small addition SO2.

A plethora of red fruits waft from the glass, fruit at the core, with savoury glimpses appearing around the edge. The whole bunch adding depth and spice from the off.

Bright and juicy, freshening and cleansing acidity - focussed across the palate's length. Possesses a lightness, ethereal one might say, if it wasn't for the twin presence of fruit and stemmy goodness. Fine tannins just completing the picture. Bloody fresh and inviting. 92
