I’ve smelt gunpowder, but not tasted it … reviewers comments about gunpowder raised the stakes for the first bottle from Mystery Case #21.
The grapes are harvested by hand in different areas of Gualtallary (upper, central and lower) to bring the diversity of terroir to each bottle. The grapea are
pressed and fermented with native yeast in concrete with the purpose of obtaining honest wines.
This is about as light a pinot noir gets (12%). There is a medium bodied palate, and lovely fine tannins. The clarity of fruit is very evident. Red cherries on the finish.
One well respected reviewer said: “Outstanding in this vintage are red fruits belended with minerals, herbs, gunpowder and graphite for a very smooth and fresh in the mouth”
Sliders and veggies were on the menu for sharing. I will check the next delivery of gunpowder for a taste test comparison.
