Folding Hill Pinot Noir Ballasalla 2017
Winemaker Tim Kerruish is originally from Ballasalla in the Isle of Man - hence the name. The Ballasalla is made in an earlier drinking juicer style than the estate cuvees, yet with the same care and attention: picking only the best grapes by hand, using sheep to keep the grass and weeds down and a touch of Fran Freres oak to round of the wine. Lots of vibrant kirsch fruit with a soft, silky mouthfeel.
Grape: Pinot Noir
Regoin: Central Otaga, New Zealand
