Our Estate Pinot. Elegant and delicate with great length.

Dark brick red in colour, this Pinot Noir has powerful aromas of dark cherry complimented by charred oak and mixed spice. The palate has lively sour cherry and strawberry flavours nicely balanced by savoury oak and persistent fine grained tannin. An elegant and delicate Pinot Noir but with a myriad of flavours and great length that will allow careful cellaring.

 

Winemaking Notes

The 2016 threw some challenges at us with a very dry growing season followed by a deluge of rain in late January.

A burst of growth with some warm weather saw some rapid flavour development and we harvested the bulk of our Pinot Noir grapes over a busy two week period.

Fruit was destemmed into open pots for a four day pre ferment maceration then inoculated with RC212 yeast with regular plunging during ferment to gently extract tannins. Upon dryness the wine was pressed to French barriques, 30% of which were new, where it remained for 9 months.

After this time in oak, the wine was racked to tank where it was left for two months to further integrate the tannins. It was then sterile filtered and bottled.

Total production for the 2016 Pinot Noir was 1887 dozen.
