6 pack / Unit price per bottle: $36
Region: Tamar Valley, Tasmania
Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Colour: Red with bright purple hues
Nose: Intense lifted nose of red cherries and wild forest fruit with hints of bracken and spice
Palate: Lifted bright, sweet wild berries and sour cherries with hints of white pepper and clove. The palate is finely structured with silky tannins and rich dark chocolate that leads to a long focused finish. Restrained oak is well integrated and provides support for the bright primary fruit
Background: Hand-picked Pinot Noir is gently destemmed and placed in small batch open top fermenters with approximately 25% whole bunches. Regular plunging (punch-down or pigéage) is used to immerse the skins and extract colour and tannin as gently as possible. After pressing the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French Oak barriques and is matured in oak for 11 months prior to bottling.
Cellaring: Whilst approachable now, the richness of fruit and fine tannins will reward you, after careful cellaring with a complex, spicy wine. Optimum cellaring now to 2022.
