2018 Pinot Noir
Savoury earthy characters which open up to cherry notes, nice herbal lift on the nose and silky subtle tannins giving length on the palate. This is an elegant, youthful style pinot noir.
cherry • fresh strawberries • savoury spice • herbal lift
Selected rows from several blocks within our Lenswood vineyards are chosen for their ability to deliver intense varietal character. In addition yields per vine are kept to a minimum. 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 16 months. After this period, we blend our finest parcels and hand bottle onsite.

Located high in the Lenswood & Piccadilly districts of the Adelaide Hills, these 15-25 year old vineyards consistently produce outstanding Pinot Noir with great concentration and fruit purity. Multiple blocks with differing aspects were carefully managed to provide different blending components.
