Shashi and Devendra Singh have been growing grapes biodynamically on their Red Hill South farm since 2005 and have been producing an outstanding Syrah under the label "Avani Syrah" since 2009. Shashi believes on minimal intervention in her winemaking process and works on maintaining natural acidity in her wines. Since 2015, they have been sourcing quality fruits around the Mornington peninsula to extend their offering and create the "Amrit" range.
The Amrit Pinot Noir 2020 is from a non irrigated vineyard in Shoreham. The grapes (including 10% whole bunch) are fermented with natural yeast in old oak barriques before aging for 12 months. It's unfinned, unfiltered and has minimal sulphur added.
Red berries on the nose, and elegant wine with ripe tannins, sweet fruit, balanced natural acidity and a long savoury finish..A cracker Pinot for the price.
