2018 Ekleipsis Nouveau Pinot Noir
Ekleipsis is definitely one of the most exciting start-ups we’ve seen come out of New Zealand for a long time. Seriously, why is the natural wine scene in Australia one of the world’s most vibrant while its virtually non-existent across the Tasman.
Ekleipsis is the label started by Jess Mavromatis using organic fruit from North Canterbury and nearby Waipara. The Nouveau, like many of her wines is made in a partial cab mac style – so think of this sitting somewhere in between a Beaujolais and a traditional Pinot Noir. It’s full of red fruit flavours and vibrant acidity.
