Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Enjoy this tasty Pinot noir made up of 86% Pinot noir co-fermented with 14% Chardonnay and showing some interesting characters from the carbonic fermentation and whole-bunch stems.
Colour: Very dark, deep, ruby-red with purple hues.
Nose: Intense, with aromas of Juniper and dark fruit, plums boysenberry and black currents. This is followed with earthy violets, jasmine and cumin
Taste: Juicy, full-bodied with flavours of honey, orange peels fresh grapefruit. A dry firewood with herbal thyme and sage, Syrah-style spice.
Palate: A balanced wine with lengthy tannin showing the small amount of whole-bunch stems and fresh acidity showing the co-fermented Chardonnay, yet still finishing rich and smooth.
The TINCAN promise:
- No additives
- No sulphur
- No animal products (vegan friendly)
- No filtration—the cloudiness in the bottle is intentional. It made up of a small amount of natural grape and yeast residue and is used as a natural antioxidant.
All of their winemaking processes are by hand, including bottling, labelling and waxing the bottles.
