Mayhem & Co. Newcomer Pinot Noir 2012

Mayhem & co. produce a small variety of wines from vineyards in area that are considered appropriate for that variety such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills, Shiraz from McLaren Vale and Riesling from Eden Valley. This wine was hand picked from a vineyard in Lenswood on the 29th of march before being whole berry fermented and pressed into mostly old French oak barrels. These techniques allow the vineyard character to express itself unencumbered. I like that way of thinking.

What I want from a proper Pinot colour is light and tart with full purple colour. All I need from a proper Pinot flavour is light earthy notes and wild berry flavours. In this wine you get all sort of flavours. There is spice and twigs with lovely juicy moments. All in all its a beautiful woolie journey.
