2020 William Downie Millstream Pinot Noir
William Downie established his own label in 2003 after several years living and working in Burgundy. His intention is to produce wines of purity and detail that reflect their place of origin. They are made in the most natural way possible, not pushed or shoved in any direction. They are not added to or subtracted from.
The bottle artwork is by none other than the legendary Australian artist Reg Mombassa no less.
The 2020 Millstream Pinot Noir has an enticing core of red berry fruits, with some cinnamon and Sichuan pepper notes giving it a savoury edge. There's also some fresh acidity, along with chalky tannins providing beautiful texture and length.
