Chatto Franklinii Pinot Noir 2021

The Wine

Lagarostrobos franklinii is the scientific name for Huon Pine. Endemic to the south west of Tasmania, and from which our beautiful valley is named. Famed for its beauty, aroma and longevity - much like the Pinot Noirs which share this magic place. This is our first release of a regional series; Tasmania has such great Pinot diversity, we are really enjoying getting to explore it and soon will bring more into this new range. Our first foray is Franklinii: 100% Huon Valley Pinot. A fuller style with red and black berry fruits, spicy lift, and great texture.
