Pinot Noir 2020

Tasting Notes

Classically pale ruby in the glass. Intensely aromatic with notes of cherry, chocolate, vanilla and a touch of earthy mushroom and forest floor. On the palate it is dry, medium bodied and structured with young tannins and refreshing acidity with flavours of cherry and raspberry with a touch of anise. The finish is long and complex with a savory and drying note.

Compelling on its own, will also compliment simple roast chicken with mushrooms, grilled salmon or wild game. Drinking well on release but will develop further complexities with short to medium term aging.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Sourced from our own Whitty Vineyard in Creek Shores. After harvest in mid-to-late September, the grapes were crushed and destemmed before being transferred to open-top fermenters for approximately 30 days of alcoholic fermentation on the skins with regular pigeage to gently extract tannin and colour. Following fermentation the wine was pressed off the skins and transferred to 1st, 2nd and 3rd use French barriques for 8 months of ageing. Following this, the wine was blended and lightly fined and filtered before bottling in September 2021.
