Yes, Granite Belt Pinot - There is such a beast!
Well actually more of a beauty really; light and bright with summer strawberries and red plums, a pinch of spice and the slightest hint of residual sugar. This is classic Picnic-Pinot!
It took a bit of a maverick move to make this wine, there isn't a lot of Pinot Noir floating around the Granite Belt and we had only ever made Rose out of it before but the 2013 fruit was looking so promising on the vine that we made a departure from our usual pink Pinot and made it RED instead!
It must have turned out ok because we're doing red Pinot again for 2015!
