Konpira Maru Over and Over Pinot Noir 2020
"Over & Over signifies the ability to break with the past, transcend expectation and convention, to redefine yourself, and to be thoroughly awesome all at the same time.
All that said, this Pinot is nothing like that! It's just a delicious drop from the Quarry Ridge Vineyard. Picked on the 19th of April and fermented in Konpira HQ after soaking on skins at 4C for 4 days with two light daily plunges. As normal, the ferment achieved a low level of volatility during the initial stages which was transformed/integrated during peak ferment activity leading to a pinot of layers and a beautiful forest funk.
Aromatics of rose petal, roadside forest berries (cheers Jordy Kay for this one), and ripe mandarin flesh. Palate is a beauty with green almond, green peppercorn, slight salted caramel fudge and a splash of Big M iced coffee (drunk when dehydrated). Lovely tannin, underlying berry flavours and a heap of spice. 2492 bottles made"
