Batista Pinot Noir 2011

Idiosyncratic wine from a true, old school legend of Australian wine, Bob Peruch. A unique, tiny, lovingly tended, one hectare vineyard in its own micro-environment surrounded by farmland and Karri/Marri forest. The wines are typically matured in barrel for long periods of time, given judicious bottle ageing, released when ‘right’ (and often not chronologically). You could say, sort of, that it’s the Bass Phillip or Bindi of Western Australia. Oak can be a feature, but character is the by-product from everything else. Bob is a real character, still using only fax and landline for communication. He also proudly states Middlesex as his region on his bottle, rather than Manjimup.
