Description

Rudi Bauer makes a mean Pinot Noir, in fact he makes a lot of them, not just for his own Quartz Reef label, but for other local winegrowers as well. But the Single Ferment Pinot Noir under black label is his finest expression, and in 2017 it's a rich, sumptuous beauty. He nicknamed the single ferment Hielo e Fuego (Fire and Ice), part of his earnest commitment to biodynamics that has seen him become one of the only Demeter certified wineries in the country.

Smells

An array of dark cherry and berry fruits, tempered by wild thyme and whole bunch herbal notes, a hint of cola perhaps.

Tastes

A brooding and quite decadent palate with sweet fruit and lots of structure and dried herb complexity. Long and seriously satisfying in its youth, this will go well in the cellar. Enjoy now to 2030.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
