Dappled Appellation Pinot Noir 2019 - Yarra Valley, VIC
Dappled is a micro-producer in the Upper Yarra Valley, bringing to market fewer than 10'000 bottles per year. Shaun Crinion, the mastermind winemaker and owner behind Dappled, is truly a rising star in the Yarra Valley region and beyond. So much so, he was awarded Best New Winery by James Halliday's Wine Companion in 2018, and also notably Young Gun of Wine in 2017.
Shaun's vision is simple. "I started Dappled in 2009 with a view to make high quality, unadulterated wines from special patches of dirt at realistic prices. I make these wines fiirst and foremost for my family and friends, so a hand-crafted, minimal intervention philosophy just makes perfect sense to me."
Beautiful nose rich in brambly red fruit flavours, this pinot is gentle on the palate with rich sweet red and dark fruits, and smoky spicy hints. Decant this wine first to allow this beauty to do its thing. A pinot that delivers so much more than it sets the budget back. A stellar choice!
