Gorgeous, but trumped by the other whole bunch pino on the table (from Macedon, Aus). To me, it feels like an incomplete wine but BM said it just needs time. Smells and taste like a fresh ferment. Nose was floral, bunchy, brimming with juicy red fruits, and also reminded me of jujubee tea. The palate was so fresh and energetic, finish made me think of cincau/grass jelly. Looked at it over 3 days, even more floral and developed a spiciness even. Was hoping for that mineral kick. Still looks like a fresh ferment to me, but an awesome one!
