Mount Edward Pinot Noir 2018
The 2018 Pinot Noir has a silky and lush texture fruit power, is concentrated yet finely balanced with fine tannins throughout and long in flavour. A classic vintage for us.
Vinified using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts and 11 months in 15% new French oak. Racked, blended and settled in tank for a further 6 months. Fermentation was carried out using de-stemmed fruit including the addition of 25% whole bunches, plus several tanks of 100% wholebunch fruit fermentation.
Perfumed with lovely aromatics, there is a range of complexed fruit notes of darker berry fruit, some spice, savoury tones and dried herbs.
Organically grown, made and certified, a blend of our best vineyard parcels.
