Dark, deep garnet in colour with deep purple hues. Intense aromas of blackberry, dark cherry and ripe plum dominate the more subtle spices and dried herbs that become more complex as the wine opens after several hours. Juicy plum and dark fruits on the palate are courtesy of a low yielding, long growing season. Tannins are bold and round, balanced with fine natural acidity and a long finish of blue fruits and five spice.
Small batches of Pinot Noir were selected from sites in our own vineyards at Pipers River and Coal River Valley. Each site and block has different clones and terroir, adding their own strengths and complexity to the final blend. The cooler northern maritime location at Pipers River produces Pinot noir that is focused and structured, while the Coal River Valley is naturally deeper in colour and concentration of fruit with fine acidity.
Each of the parcels were picked based on their merit. Fermentation started after two to three days and continued for four to five days, with up to five percent whole bunches. The cap was plunged twice a day to extract colour and tannin from the skins. The wine was then pressed and settled before before being placed into French oak barriques (22% new) for 11 months, where malolactic fermentation took place prior to filtration and bottling.
