The 2020 Hughes and Hughes Pinot Noir is elegant in style with generous blue fruits adding to crunchy red foundations with subtle reductive edges. Good soft tannins support full flavours and ripe acidity. Represents the long, cool season that 2020 was.
Fruit from vineyards in the Coal River, Derwent and Tamar Valleys, the North West and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. Predominantly whole berry, 12% whole bunch including a carbonic component, natural yeast, held on skins for 16-21 days. Pressed directly to and matured in oak (5% new). Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
