Commune of Buttons Pinot Noir Gloria 2019
100% Pinot Noir. Australian wine is in a constant state of flux; of change, evolution and revolution which sees new techniques, vines and wineries popping up all the time. One such winery is the wonderfully named Commune of Buttons. Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay twenty years ago by their mother. They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking. Gloria is the single vineyard Pinot Noir grown on the Buttons' Basket Range property. Jasper Button's winemaking skills continue to evolve and his gains in this discipline are no more pronunced than in the purity he is showcasing in his Pinot Noirs. As with all of his wines, minimal intervention in the winery is the modus operandi. The only whisper of sulphur was added just after malo to ensure the wine's stability. This wine is goregous, ethereal, fresh, and alive. Fermented with 80% whole cluster this wine is strawberry and cherry instead of plum and blackberries. Commune of Buttons is one of the most exciting wineries coming out of the island continent and we simply adore them.
