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 lateā€¦ 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.
