2017 BOOMTOWN No.3 RED - Nero D'Avola | Pinot Noir - 6 Bottles

150.00

The 2017 Boomtown No3 Red is our first red release of the season; a gently handled young wine with varietal fruit character and texture from front to back. An exciting release for Boomtown, this year combining Colbinabbin Nero d’Avola and Faraday Pinot Noir. While still coming from the wonderful Chalmers vineyard in Colbinabbin, this year’s Nero d’Avola came from the top block of the site. On more unusual Cambrian ‘country rock’ and an elevated aspect, the fruit was without doubt the best example of the variety we have worked with at Boomtown. Flavours and tannins where beautifully ripe, and the season again gifted very good natural acidity. A small portion of the Nero d’Avola was fermented carbonically as 100% W.B – without any pumping or plunging - whilst the majority was fermented destemmed, with slightly extended macerations. The Pinot Noir makes up approximately 20% of the blend and was fully tannically ripe while retaining acid balance. Fermented 100% destemmed, the pinot portion was varietal and elegant without denying the power and muscle of the Faraday site. Fermented, blended and bottle without any additions at any point, 2017 No.3 promises to be an extremely delicious springtime and summer red.
