2018 Joshua Cooper Doug’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
Doug’s Vineyard is situated on the outskirts of the township of Romsey, in the Macedon Ranges. It’s a cool site with the vines sitting at around 500m altitude on red rocky volcanic basalt soil
The Pinot Noir fruit is handled very lightly and bottled unfined and unfiltered with the only addition to the wine being a small dose of sulfur the week of bottling.
It tastes of exotic spice, rose, earth, sweet herbs and concentrated sour cherry and raspberry fruit. Long, fine and deep, with silky but present tannin and cleansing, sappy acidity. This is top tier Pinot.
