Background

Pure fresh primary fruits dominate with underlying tannins and acidity providing great support for this excellent example of early release café style Pinot Noir.

Vineyard Notes

Sourced from 3 Vineyards. Derwent Estate, one in the Coal River Valley and another 35-year-old dry grown vineyard in the Hillwood area. All 3 vineyards are managed with VSP trellising and the fruit is hand picked.

Winemaking

Picked at a point where the primary fruits were bright and fresh. We harvested in small batches with a different fermentation management program for each. By no means was this wine treated any less than our most expensive wines. Whole bunch, destemmed, pressed early, pressed late… Pinot Noir is about layers and we assist this by variation in our processes. All ferments were gently pressed into old oak barrels. After malo-lactic fermentation the wine underwent minimal finning with a small amount of Sulphur added prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

With a harvest sourced from 3 Vineyards, this exhibits pure fresh primary berry fruits with underlying tannins, acidity and oak. An excellent example of early release café style Pinot Noir. Aroma: Vibrant, fresh, raspberry, mulberry. Palate: Rich, cherry, berry fruits, subtle tannins.
