2020 Mea Culpa Pinot Noir
A beautifully layered, complex and fragrant expression of Pinot Noir from historic vineyards in the Yarra Valley. Our winemaking guilty pleasure.
THE MEA CULPA STORY
Mea Culpa is an admission of guilt, an unapologetic acknowledgment that we should have known better. While we generally steer well clear of the navel gazing snobbery of the wine world, with Mea Culpa we give over to passion, take exceptional parcels of fruit and indulge in winemaking debauchery to create a uniquely expressive wine. This is not a wine that claims perfection, but a wine that delivers an expression of site, vintage and winemaking character. If indulging in your passion is a crime, then we are guilty as charged.
Region: Yarra Valley
Tastes like: It glides across the palate with the nuance and intrigue of a Hitchcock movie. Oozing red fruit richness supported by light, white truffle notes and fine silky tannins. It’s a wickedly complex Pinot that treads the fine balance between elegance and intensity with a dangerous ease.
Smells like: There’s wafts of blood-red roses, wild blackberry and blueberries with hints of cardamom, cinnamon and cranberry.
|Wine making:||The 2020 vintage saw cool and wet conditions through the flowering phase leading to small compact grape clusters. Post Christmas the weather warmed up promoting strong red berry fruit development. The yields stayed low which provided impressive structure and power.
