Platinum Pinot Noir

Platinum Pinot Noir

Bright aromas on the nose of macerated cherry, cloves, dried mushrooms and cured meats. The body is juicy with a medium-plus structure and bold yet approachable tannin.  Notes of blueberry and chocolate on the palate lead into a hint of fresh mint leaves with a lifted finish.

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 2028.

Vineyard Notes

Production Notes
Hand harvested and sorted in the vineyard, the Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed only into one-ton fermenters ensuring a high proportion of whole berries. After 6-7 days of cold soak, the musts are gradually warmed up to initiate a natural or directed 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. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in barrel.
Winemaker Notes
It undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation and matures in barrel for 15 months with no racking until pre-bottle blending. The 2018 Platinum Pinot Noir matures in 100% new French barriques and puncheons for 12 months. Unfined and unfiltered prior to bottling.
