The Pawn El Desperado Pinot Noir 2022 14.5% 750ml

The Pawn El Desperado Pinot Noir 2022 14.5% 750ml

Prior to fermentation, the grapes were left on skins for 2 days, then wild fermented dry over the next 10 days with 10% whole bunch, in an open top fermenter. The ferment is hand plunged twice a day, with the temperature peaking at 32ºC . Post ferment, the wine remained on skins for 4 days, after which I pressed into a mix of new and old (10% : 90%) French oak puncheons (500L) and Foudres (2000L) for malolactic fermentation and maturation of 6 months. The wine was bottled in late September 2020.

The Pawn Wine Company was born in 2002 when Tom Keelan (viticulturist and winemaker), Rebecca Wilson (Winemaker) and David Blows (a leading Adelaide Hills vigneron) joined forces. The 3 Amigos feared that special parcels of fruit, in exceptional vineyard sites were being blended away into "large company" wines.....in essence they decided to channel their skills towards small batch winemaking, and to stop being "pawns" of the global game.
