PINOT NOIR 2022 – YARRA VALLEY (OUT OF STOCK)
The season has been reasonably cool allowing a slow ripening and the harvest was late, taking place in mid-March.
The fruit was hand harvested. 30% of the fruit was kept as whole bunch and the rest were retained as whole berries. A slow fermentation took place for 2 weeks and the fruit was gently plunged by hand. The wine was aged in barrels with 10% new oak for 6 months.
Bottling took place when the wine achieved optimum balance between fruit expression and delicate tannins.
The result is a lively, vibrant wine, with aromas of cherries, boysenberries with leather base notes.
