Region: Piccadilly - Adelaide Hills, SA
Variety: Pinot Noir
The 2020 was harvested from The Cemetery Block vineyard and the Deanery vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley. The parcels were fermented separately (both with 20% whole bunches in open top 2000L jarrah fermenters). The wines were aged on fine lees in old barriques for 11 months before blending and bottling just before vintage in 2021.
Basket Town red is characteristically red fruited with lively acidity. There are complex tannins which will unwind with some bottle ageing. This wine is very digestible and easy going - a true bistro wine!
