Pinot Noir wine from Tumbarumba, made using carbonic fermentation and whole berry techniques, has a distinct and unique profile.
Appearance: Exhibiting bright, translucent ruby-red hue. This style of winemaking results in a lighter and more delicate color compared to traditional Pinot Noirs.
Aroma: Vibrant and aromatic. You can expect a bouquet of red fruit notes such as ripe cherries, strawberries, and raspberries. The carbonic fermentation process tends to preserve the freshness of the fruit and impart intense floral and fruity scents.
Flavor: A showcase of lively and juicy characters. The whole berry and carbonic fermentation methods tend to produce a wine with a soft, approachable palate. Flavours of red berries, especially red cherries, with a touch of cranberry and pomegranate. The wine's freshness may be accompanied by a hint of herbaceous notes and subtle spice.
Texture: Thanks to carbonic maceration, this Pinot Noir has a silky-smooth and slightly lighter mouthfeel. It should be very drinkable and easy on the palate, with supple tannins.
Finish: The finish of this wine is clean and refreshing, leaving a lingering taste of red fruits and perhaps a touch of minerality. The finish will be relatively short to medium in length, in line with the lighter style of Pinot Noir produced using these methods.
Overall our first vintage of the Underground Project's Pinot Noir is a charming and approachable wine. It's characterized by its vivid red fruit aromas and flavors, soft tannins, and an overall freshness that makes it a delightful choice for those who prefer a lighter, more fruit-forward style of Pinot Noir. It's a great wine for casual sipping and pairing with a variety of dishes, especially those that won't overpower its delicate characteristics.
