100% Pinot Noir from a north-east facing vineyard, located in the reputable Coal River Valley region of Tasmania.
Fruit was hand-picked, fermented in open fermenters and hand plunged throughout, with an average of 25% of whole bunches. Aged in French oak barriques, approximately 1/3 new, for 10 months, followed by 7 months in bottle prior to release.
Expressive Pinot aromas leap from the glass once again showing the extravagant, almost exotic nature of this wine. Dark cherry and a hint of plum meld seamlessly with spice and sap notes. The palate has both ripe and earthy edges with juicy acidity delivering brightness and freshness. There is a wonderful poise, where the sense of structure and tannic grip perfectly frame the complex fruit and savoury characters.
