The 2012 Pinot Noir is carefully blended from 3 vineyards in the Lowburn and Bannockburn sub regions; our estate vineyards of Morrison and Muirkirk plus our grower vineyard Pisa Terrace. All are farmed using certified BioGro organic practices. The vineyards are planted with a mixture of the Dijon clones and cropped at an average of 35 hectolitres per hectare, all vineyards being planted between 1997 and 2000.
Vinified using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts, and 11 months in French oak – 20 % new – before racking and settling in tank for a further 3 months. Fermentation was carried out using de-stemmed fruit including the addition of 25% whole bunches.
Perfumed with lovely aromatics, there is a range of complexed fruit notes of red cherry and darker berryfruit, some spice, savoury tones and dried herbs.
The 2012 has a silky and lush texture, medium in weight and concentration, fine tannins and long in length.
No filtration or fining, deposits may form.
