2015 Home Vineyard Pinot Noir
100% Estate Grown Pinot Noir sourced from our 21 year old dry grown vines. Low yields (approx 0.5- 1kg/vine or 3.5 tonne/ha average) to ensure perfect ripeness. Handpicked, 70% whole bunches 30% whole berries, wild yeast ferments (21-43 days on skins) and 10 months maturation in French oak barriques (25% new). Bottled March 2016.
This wine is already displaying such potential in its youth, with great structure and depth. It has a complex bouquet of pure ripe red fruits, with sweet wood smoke and floral rose petal aromas. The palette is silky and persistent; showing mingled red berry fruits, fine spice and long chalky tannins on the finish.
Be patient as this wine is still very young – otherwise if you can’t resist, it will benefit from decanting.
