2016 Longwood Pinot Noir
Earthy characters, plum, cherry and herbal notes on the nose and silky subtle tannins giving length on the palate. This is an elegant, medium to full bodied style Pinot Noir.
The fruit is hand-picked into small baskets and then undergoes a cold soak pre-ferment to enhance the extraction of colour and aromatics. After fermentation the skins are pressed out using our traditional basket press and then the wine aged in French oak barriques for 12 months. After this period, we blend our finest parcels and hand bottle onsite.
Our Longwood home block vineyard was planted in 2009. Five clones of Pinot vines are planted on the southern side of the hill, with tall gums providing shade from the western summer sun.
