Pinot Noir 2017
The 2017 vintage was a little cooler than normal with lower crop levels. Deep red-purple with aromas of cherry & spice. The palate has dark berry fruits, a touch of raspberry & a whisper of oak. Fine supple, savoury tannins & great length. A wine of power, charm & grace.
This wine is made from a single patch of MV6 – rows 33 – 35. The bunches are destemmed but the resulting skin and juice mix contains 95% whole berries. A 5 day pre-fermentation cold soak preceded a natural ferment with no yeast being added. The wines were pressed in our gentle air bag press (see winemakers diary under the Cellar Door web page) and then aged in French oak barrels from a range of tonnelleries.
