Mulline Portalington Pinot Noir 2021

$50.00

100% NV6 clone planted in the Nurringa Park vineyard, a little further back from the ocean than the Chardonnay block but still heavily maritime influenced. Sandy loam, dark clay and Limestone. 50% whole-bunch ferment then pressed off to barrel, 30% new oak, 9 months elevage. Ben points out that this site gives more density, opposite to what it gives the Chardonnay block.“The brightest and most aromatic Pinot Noir of the range. More whole bunches normally trying to build some cab-mac aromatics into the blend. Oak use is more subtle, using a lighter toast barrel and more savoury in the profile. The site has been the first to be picked since we have been getting the fruit, and normally larger bunches. The site also gets a lot more rain than the Sutherlands Creek and Drysdale sites, due to how close it is to the water” – Ben Mullen
