This wine is burgundy in colour and the aroma offers a gamey note with hints of spice and sweet red cherry. It has excellent complexity and great length with silky tannins. Its incredible show results would suggest that it is one of our best ever Pinot Noir vintages.
|Notes From The Winemaker:||The 115 fruit was harvested on 16th March 2015 at 13.4 baume, and the MV6 on 24th March 2015 at 13.2 baume. This wine went through a 7 day ferment in open fermenters with 8% whole clusters and was hand-plunged 3 times per day. It had 5 days post ferment maceration and was pressed, settled overnight, then racked to French barriques and hogsheads, 40% of which was new. It has enjoyed 10 months maturation and was blended and bottled in late February 2016.|
