Nikau Pinot Noir 2019
Serious wine from Dane Johns better known as Momento Mori, much loved in the Aussie natural wine scene. Grapes from Leongatha in Gippsland, Victoria, the Nikau project has a softer touch than Momento Mori and there is something enchanting about these wines.
This is pretty and austere country. The wines are proper natural like. Natural ferment, zero additions. No sulphur. But they sing quietly with purity and clarity. It’s like an acoustic side project from a band that you like that turns out better than the band you like.
