  • THE BRIEF

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • Fat Bastard sources fruit from some of the best regions around the world, allowing them to produce a range of full bodied wines. They are focused on the wines being distinctive, showing classic features of warmer vintages, and richer styles with excellent balance of fruit acid and tannin.

    From the Languedoc-Rousillon region, this Pinot is a little bigger and riper than its Burgundian counterparts. As FB say, "we wouldn't go so far as fat..."

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Languedoc Rousillon.

    Fermented in open Stainless Steel vats on skins for 14 days. Gentle pressing off skins via airbag press. Matured in an selection of old French oak. Bottled to screwcap to retain freshness.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    This full-bodied pinot delivers on its name. Delicate aromas featuring black and red fruit with hints of orange chocolate, ramp up to a full flavoursome pinot noir, with lashings of dark cherry and stewed rhubarb notes. Good balancing acidity, tannin and palate persistence round out this French gem.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • The brainchild of Guy Anderson and Thierry Boudinaud, Fat Bastard Wines came into being via an exclamation, "Now that is what you call a Fat Bastard!" The comment came in response to a barrel of experimental Chardonnay that Thierry had left on lees for an extended maturation. Both Guy and Thierry felt that the wines had to be shared with the world, and so Fat Bastard Wines was born. Now, the pair work with wineries and vineyards from all over the world, sourcing fruit and juice from a myriad different regions and countries. But one factor remains the same: they make unapologetically full-bodied wines, packed with flavour and vibrancy.
