Timo Mayer Dr Mayer Pinot Noir 2020

The Doktor Pinot Noir is sourced from Timo's infamous "Bloody Hill" vineyard 200 meters above sea level. This wine is similar to his other Pinot — Close Planted — except it is made with 100% whole bunch in open vats. The wine is aged for 11 months in French Hogsheads.

4.05 / 5.0750 ml@π-not · π-not

This wine captivates with an intriguing bouquet reminiscent of a juicy fruit basket, enriched with notes of red berries, raw meat, and bitter herbs. Its complexity and multilayered nature are striking, presenting a profile that is both juicy and round, with a ripe character. As a 'natural' wine, it stands out for its absence of funkiness, offering instead a quaffable, complex, and charming experience. This makes it not only interesting but also delightfully enjoyable to drink.

Wine #7 on π-not event.
