Wild Folk Pinot Noir 2021

Another label range for the Fourth Wave Wine team. Made by the sure hand of Tim Shand from Punt Road Wines. No added sulphites, wild yeast fermentation, made from old vines and bottled unfiltered and unfined. You’ll need to know how to operate a corkscrew as the range is bottled under DIAM cork (and a wax seal).

Wild Folk, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2021 

WildFolk PN

Medium garnet with a brightish purple rim. Dusty, dusky leaf matter with earthy dark cherry, anise and cinnamon spice with a meaty hint. Mid weight. Brightly coloured cherry fruit with easy, drying fruit tannins (no oak in the fermentation to give woody influence). Tense and pent up with nervy acidity. Give it some air and match with a mushroom schnitzel to round out your gentle earth experience.

RRP: $28
Alc: 13%
Rating:  17.75/20 (91/100)
