2019 Small Lot Pinot Noir

Winemaker's Notes

Note the intriguing interplay of perfumed and earthier aromas, including cherries and cream, plum, cinnamon, black tea and a trace of pepper patch. The texture is silky while generous, and flavours resemble cherry, mulberry, raspberry and cranberry.

Sourced equally and hand-picked from the Moira and Mottiar Vineyards as grape sugars averaged 21.5° Brix.

The two vineyards’ portions were vinified separately; primary and malolactic fermentation of the Moira Vineyard fruit was accomplished in stainless-steel while that from the Mottiar vineyard was performed in concrete tank.  The wine was directed to French oak barrels, 6% of which were new, to age for 10 months.  After blending, 443 cases were bottled in August 2020.

At the time of bottling, the wine was measured at 12.5% alcohol, 0 grams per litre residual sugar, 6.8 grams per litre titratable acidity and 3.58 pH.

Dry: 0 g/L residual sugar
