2017 Gold Pinot Noir 3L

2017 Gold Pinot Noir 3L

Layered and bold, this Pinot Noir entices you with pronounced aromas of ripe dark fruits, star anise, cloves, and subtle vanilla notes. The palate offers bold plush fruit, primarily dried cranberry, huckleberry, and blackberry. Ripe tannins and a pleasing frame of acidity lead into the generous finish.

We recommend patience and a favourable cellaring environment to encourage the development of alluring tertiary characteristics. This wine will age beautifully through 2025.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Pinot Noir is sourced exclusively from our own estate vineyard growing the clones 115, 667 and 777. Crop yields are kept low at about 2.0 tons per acre.
Production Notes
Hand harvested and sorted in the vineyard, the Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed only into one ton fermenters. About 15% whole clusters are added to each fermenter. Hand plunging is used to keep the cap moist and ensure colour and tannin extraction. The fermentation temperatures are maintained cool early in ferment and then elevated to aid in phenolic extraction. The total maceration time is about 3 weeks. The wines are drained and pressed off just before dryness and tank settled prior to going to barrel.
Winemaker Notes
It undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation and matures in barrel for 15 months with no racking until pre-bottle blending. The 2017 Gold Pinot Noir is 80% new oak (primarily puncheons) and the balance in 2nd fill barrels. Unfiltered prior to bottling.
