WINEMAKING: Fruit for the Estate vineyard Pinot Noir was grown on two quite different sites; a combination of south facing slope on the back C block, and the North facing B block. Hand-picked on the 9th and 10th of March respectively, the fruit was kept in the coolroom overnight. One fermenter was 100% whole bunches (10% of final blend from the warmer B block) and the others were entirely de-stemmed and tipped into 1t to 4t fermenters. Once fermentation commenced after the fourth day (indigenous yeasts finally co-operating), the cap was pumped over very gently twice per day and remained on its skins for 12-16 days. At the completion of fermentation, the wine was pressed to tank and then racked to French oak barrels (26% new) for malolactic fermentation. 10 months in oak, before being bottled February 13th, 2018. 210 dozen produced. TASTING NOTES: Brilliant, enticing cherry red with a lovely crimson hue. The nose speaks of place, under the shadow of the Warramatte Ranges, dark cherry, licorice, exotic red fruits and violets and spice it is both detailed and abundant. The southern aspect of the blend and the extremely low crop has ensured a concentrated and precise wine with a subtle and fine palate, whilst the fruit from the northern aspect is giving supple fine ’sweet tannins’ – balance is assured here.
