Pinot Noir ‘Ad Hoc Cruel Mistress’, Great Southern, Larry Cherubino, 2021

£85.14/ 6 x Bottles (£14.19 each)

A silky and elegant Pinot Noir with vibrant red fruit notes enhanced by subtle hints of sweet savoury spice and sandalwood. The fruit was fermented using a combination of wild fermentation and selected yeasts. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was matured in a selection of one to three-year-old French oak barrels, for a period of six months. The nose shows graphite, minerals and juicy black cherries. A hint of spicy oak plays a supporting role. The palate is softly textured, fresh and vibrant, the flavours of black cherry and earthy beetroot carried along by a soft, silky finish.
