100% Pinot Noir from two vineyards in the central Adelaide Hills region South Australia.
Fruit was hand-picked then crushed and de-stemmed. Around 30-40% was whole bunch fermented. Temperature controlled fermentation lasted over 7-8 days and finished in French oak barriques. Aged for 12 months in oak, of which 40-45% was new, Bottled without fining, followed by a further year in bottle before release.
Gentle red cherry and mulberry aromatics, brambley, black cherry and juicy redcurrant flavours, seductive silky texture, tight structure and a savoury lingering finish. Fine, focused and delicate with good weight and strong varietal character right now, it will open up and appear fleshier, more seductive and even more complex.
