100% Pinot Noir sourced from the block behind the Shaw and Smith winery in Balhannah, and from their new Lenswood vineyard, in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia.
Fruit was hand picked with utmost care. A combination of whole berry and whole bunch fermentation tok place, with extended time on skins pre- and post-ferment allowing gentle extraction.The wine was matured on lees in French barriques, of which 25% were new.
Heady aromas of red cherry, rhubarb, cinnamon and cedar, with hints of vanilla pod and fennel seed. There's a snappy freshness to the wine with lively acidity and succulent red fruit on the palate. Elegant and medium bodied, with some earthy, stalky complexity, fine grained tannins and lithe texture.
