Made by Kevin Bell. MV6 pinot. Matured for 20 months in oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Single vineyard release named after the famous font. Garamond. It’s a beautiful word in itself.
Elegant power. It looks light but it has presence. It presents a myriad of autumnal, spice-strewn flavours but the fruit is ripe and racy. A spot of reduction, a slip of smoky oak, undergrowth notes beavering away beneath. This is impressive. There’s a macerated feel to the fruit but there’s still a great deal going on. This is arguably the best Garamond I’ve tasted. In the tannin I see finesse. Excellent signs everywhere.
