Fleet Nostalgia Pinot Noir 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.
We tasted this in the garage with Lisa while talking about Thundercat albums and the wine truly brought a tear to the eye, full of magic and so aptly named - it felt like the first time trying one of those life changing wines again, because it really is one of those itself. Thanks for bringing the stoke back guys!
Notes from Fleet:
NOSTALGIA embraces emotions and love. We reflect on the connection to a place, and how that connection is both at once comforting, but coloured with longing and loss. It is through a lens of connection and longing we decided to make a wine that is a pure expression of a place, a terrior. This is Leongatha, South Gippsland. Country we love.
Drink this now with a decant, or cellar over the next 5-10 years.
‘Bright crimson red colour, perfumed aromatics – florals, cherry, plums – with earthy, spice notes. Leading to a complex and layered palate. A lot of structure and fruit weight, with purity and drive with acid and tannin interplay. Interesting, intriguing and alluring.
