THE FERAL FOX 2017 Pinot Noir
The feral foxes that inhabit the Adelaide Hills have developed an appetite for grapes and can often be found eating low hanging bunches during vintage. We're not fussed though as these bushy tailed critters act as crop thinners and enhance the quality of grapes that are too high for them to reach. It also has the secondary effect of providing a natural source of fertilisation when the laxative nature of the grapes take effect on the normally carnivorous foxes.
An attractive pale garnet colour that screams lightness and finesse. The nose is red-fruited and spicy, with loads of white pepper and a slight herbal edge. Strawberry and sour cherry race across the palate, finishing with lively acidity and pleasingly bitter (in a good way) tannins. It will be hard to stop at one glass.
