Travis Tausend Djuna Pinot Noir 2021
Travis Tausend we first met when he was manning the helm of Høst Wine Imports, where he brought some of the most esoteric and intriguing wines into the country, capturing the imagination of drinkers nationwide.
His own wines that he makes from the Adelaide Hills are an extension of his own personailty, engaging, in touch with the earth and full of bright intensity.
Notes from TT:
The vines on the Magpie Springs property in Hope Forest
are producing better and better fruit each year. Undervine
work and mid-row cultivation plus cover crops have
allowed this vineyard to increase its vigour and produce
fruit of wonderful quality in the 2021 harvest.
A long ripening period and making the decision to pick a
touch later has allowed the vineyard and pinot avours to
shine through here.
I really like this wine, it feels classic and new all at once and
is on our table regularly at home as we move into the
