Vat 6 Hunter Pinot Noir

A classic Hunter Pinot Noir - well balanced and full flavoured. Light in colour, the Vat 6 Pinot Noir has a strawberry lift on the nose with stalk character from the whole bunch ferment adding complexity. The palate is delicate with bright berry fruit characters being the forerunner to the fine tannin structure. It is a wine that will age well in the medium term.

92+ Points - 500 dozen produced. Baby faced winemaker Chris Tyrrell advises “around 40% whole bunch, based on bucket mathematics, comes out of wood earlier, not much racking and stuff. Leave it be. Natural primary ferment, let it run. No fining has happened in these wines for about for ten years. Light cross flow filter to make it sparkly.” That’s me doing my speed typing as he talks, and while I quote, I change his words to make them a bit fancier. Anyway, Vat 6, Hunter Valley, Tyrrells and Pinot Noir, as Halliday once quipped of one Vat 6 “Truly the dog talking”. Well, I reckon every dog will have its day, and for me, that happens a fair bit with Vat 6. A characterful wine, that presents another different, regional and, I think, varietal expression of the grape. I like it.
