About

Anthony Fikkers makes self-confessedly "smashable" wines. This, his 2016 Pinot Meunier, is just that. It's not every day you see a table wine made from this grape. Traditionally used in the production of sparkling, it has a reputation of being something akin to Pinot Noir's ugly cousin. But in the right hands, it is an epic drink. With the maturing of the Coldstream vineyard, and his confidence now growing with four vintages of this wine under his belt, this year he was happy enough to put it under his single vineyard label. This vintage was made with 100% whole bunches and 100% awesomeness. It's not a stern and serious style, it is made to rip into and has to be one of the best value versions of this variety in the country. Only 140 dozen of this delicious beast were made so get in quick!

What it Tastes Like

Blueberries and mulberries, a hint of a slightly greeny/herbally thing. Pretty punchy on the nose, this has some real character. Some exotic spices, too. Maybe some aniseed. Smells wicked. So slippery through the mouth. Glides along with sweet and spicy fruit, a tail of gummy tannin trailing behind. Gulp. Gulp. If smashability was what he was going for. Nailed it.
