Ayoub 2018 Estate Whole Cluster Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

Whole-cluster fermentation is the hallmark of this wine, which remains stubbornly closed. Aggressive aeration and hours of time help considerably, bringing up tight layers of dried tea leaves, chamomile, fruit leather and an overriding minerality. This is a wine that clearly shows the hand of the winemaker and the stamp of the soil. Give it more bottle age and decant it prior to drinking. Paul Gregutt
