Product Description

The grapes were harvested from late March to early April 2010. After harvest destemmed then cold soaked for five to seven days prior to fermentation. Fermentation was carried out in a combination of open-top and closed-top fermenters. A mixture of wild (~25%) and cultured yeast strains were used to express the essence of this unique terroir. The wine was drained off skins to barrel and underwent malolactic fermentation. At the end of fermentation the wine was left to mature in barriques., t This wine has a deep, ruby red hue with a fragrant bouquet of red plums, raspberry and black cherry shows ripe, red berry fruit and cherry flavours with a lingering fruit sweetness. Tannins are fine and integrated, making the wine immediately approachable. This wine is best enjoyed with succulent red meat dishes, such as spring lamb, duck, veal or game. Dishes featuring mushrooms or red berry fruits will also complement this Pinot Noir beautifully. This wine is designed for immediate enjoyment but will reward patient cellaring of up to five years.
