The wine: Borachio Pinot Noir 2019
Borachio Pinot Noir is a natural wine from Australia made from 100% pinot noir grapes farmed sustainably. Picked during a wild heatwave, 3 days over 40c - brutal! Whole bunches, jumped on and macerated for 4 days, topped up with some Pash Rash juice. Fresh and bright, with lively acidity. Reminds me a little bit of Allens toffee apple lollies, some tiny tannin hiding out right in the back. Hard not to smash a bottle.
