(2020) I still recall and lovely afternoon spent with winemaker Paul Pujol about 12 or more years ago, sitting in his little ‘hut’ high in the vineyards of this old gold-mining hillside in Bendigo. This has a vibrant but pale colour, the wild yeast giving a subtle earth and burnished, chestnut note, the fruit dry and cranberry like, with a little tobacco spice. Lovely ripe stuff on the palate, but the sweetness of the fruit curtailed and controlled by tight, dry tannins and excellent acidity, the smoky and nutty oak adding some depth. Price and stockist for the previous vintage at time of review.
