The E Block—home to 18-year-old vines of the MV6 clone—has been identified as growing the best of the best Pinot Noir Toolangi produces. It is this block that supplies both the Paul’s Lane and this reserve bottling. Specifically, here the fruit is sourced from rows 26 to 45. Hermann's 2020 was partially de-stemmed (60% whole bunch and 40% whole berry) before a short cold soak and then natural fermentation. All up the wine spent four weeks on skins before being pressed to French oak (30% new) for 10 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Reviews

"The fruit for this 2020 E Block Pinot Noir was wild fermented with 80% whole berries and 20% whole bunches in the mix. It matured for nine months in French oak (20% new). This is spicy and exotic, with layers of red apple skins, star anise, a whiff of chutney and orange blossom. In the mouth, the wine is finely textured, fresh and supple."
