2019 Gold Pinot Noir

2019 Gold Pinot Noir

A luxurious floral nose with notes of sandalwood and tart cherry, hints of mushroom and tomato leaf.  The palate is welcoming with a bouquet of lively fruit, cherries, star anise and a touch of pepper lead into bright and lifted tannins and a 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. Particular attention is paid to canopy management of these vines to ensure airflow in the canopy, minimizing the need for spraying. Clusters are partially exposed early in the growing season to encourage phenolic development. Crop yields are kept low at about 2.0 tons per acre and may be reduced further depending on the growing season.
Production Notes
Hand harvested and sorted in the vineyard, the Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed only into one ton fermenters. After 6-7 days of cold soak, the musts are gradually warmed up to encourage a natural fermentation. 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 2019 Gold Pinot Noir is 55% new French barriques and puncheons and the balance in 2nd fill barrels. Unfined and unfiltered prior to bottling.
