William Downie 'Cathedral' Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Aromas of raspberry and red cherry lead into flavors of blackcurrant and blackberry. The palate is precise and fine, with well-defined acidity and subtle tannins.
Considered the 'grand-daddy of the natural wine movement', William Downey is one of the original innovators of minimal intervention Pinot Noir in Australia. He has worked in legendary regions across the globe, from the Yarra Valley, to Mornington Peninsula, to Burgundy. Downie eventually settled and began producing his own wines focused on the Gippsland region in Victoria. Pinot Noir is his only cultivated grape, a dedication that is nearly unheard of in this day and age.
