Pinot Noir Two is the antithesis of Pinot Noir One, with emphasis on secondary character expression. Ripe stalks, post fermentation maceration up to 16 days, and carefully chosen charry French barriques, create a wine of structure, power and savoury intensity.
The nose of P2 immediately emphasises secondary characters; peanut brittle, toasted almonds, freshly ground coffee and caraway seeds come to the fore. With time the fruit and stalk start to come through as blueberries, blackberries, and Indian spices with charry oak adding a touch of graphite.
The palate is structured, extremely long and constantly evolving – but always dark. Plush dark berries give tremendous volume to the wine, contrasted by savoury cocoa and umami notes; forest undergrowth and mushrooms.
