Forager pinot noir 2020, North Canterbury
Regular price $55.00
This is the ninth release of Forager Pinot Noir. 2020 was a season providing both good crop levels and wonderful pure fruit. A season beginning with good soil moisture led to a period of mixed weather through late Spring and early Summer. The late season was exceptional allowing for good ripening and healthy fruit condition. Several passes through the small Isolated Hill vineyard to tend to shoot thinning, bunch thinning, dropping shoulders and leaf plucking have provided the natural raw ingredients for a vibrant and expressive wine. The fruit was hand picked in late March and left outside in the vines to ferment with a full 26 days on skins, before bringing to the winery for a gentle pressing to French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 14 months before bottling without fining or filtration.
