(2021) Though this estate's exisiting Earth Smoke and Angel Flower Pinots were produced in 2018, this is a new wine introduced by Smith & Sheth. Parcels were fermented in large wooden casks and aged in them too. Red cherry and briar on the nose, a refined floral note too, but more focused on bright fruit and sweet damp earth than the more vegetal (mushroom, truffle) face of Pinot. Quite fresh and elegant on the palate too - a dry pomegranate and cranberry fruitiness, plenty of sour cherry and plum acidity and a grain to the tannins that gives a nice little bite to the profile. Quite long, well-balanced and spicy in the finish too.
