2017 Platinum Pinot Noir 5L

2017 Platinum Pinot Noir 5L

Beautiful aromatics of ripened dark fruits, stewed raspberry, baked figs, and subtle allspice. The mid-weight yet lavish palate boasts integrated black fruits and baking spices. Significant follow through to a tenacious finish still engaging with dark fruit and spices with balanced acidity, adding to the structure to last a decade or more.

While harmonious and elegant in its youth, we do recommend cellaring as your patience will be well rewarded. The acidity and palate structure will allow this wine to age gracefully through 2027.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Sourced entirely from estate grown grapes of our Corbishley Vineyard growing clones 777, 667, and 115. Crop yields were purposely kept low with Pinot Noir, an average of 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 natural fermentation 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 Platinum Pinot Noir is 100% new oak (primarily puncheons). Unfiltered prior to bottling.
