2019 CRFT Arranmore Vineyard Pinot Noir
Shy at first, giving charry oak, dried thyme and a savoury note. As it opens the fruit and spice begin to pop with blood plum, pomegranate and a sweet perfumed note. The palate is layered and lengthy, it’s savoury yet sweet, textural and concentrated. With notes of whole bunch, it shows the broody and dark characters we always see with the Arranmore Pinot.
Will soften and continue to develop complexity and secondary characters with bottle age. Drink now or cellar 5-10 years, possibly beyond.Made by winemakers Candice Helbig and Frewin Ries, CRFT Wines express the individualism of location. They specialise in small-batch, single vineyard wines, using fruit sourced from a handful of blocks in South Australia’s Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.
