Fleet Chorus 2021
Lisa & Justin have always been a favourite appointment to book, not just for their wines, which are pure, honest, heartfelt and yet highly thought out; but they are fantastic humans to boot.
Once again a perfect title for a perfectly harmonious wine. This is the direction wine should be heading, expressive, light-footed and telling a new story of where it came from.
Notes from Fleet:
A new wine in the house for us, inspired by viewing the vineyard as a whole and letting the varieties come together and sing… much like that hook in a song that keeps you coming back!
A red wine built on texture and freshness that is modelled on finding a really pleasurable experience of place regardless of the variety.
Made with roughly representative proportions of what’s grown in the vineyard with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Each variety has an influence, but works in harmony with the others.
‘Bright cherry, earthy, herbal/brambly aromatics, bright lifted wild raspberries, sappy/crunchy texture, silty/fine tannins. It has understated weight and texture. It’s an endlessly interesting wine that leaves you wanting more.’
