An elegant Pinot Noir with delicate red fruit aromas of cherries and red currants, with hints of earthiness and mushrooms. This medium-bodied Pinot Noir has soft tannins and lingering cherry fruit flavour on the palate.
100% Estate grown grapes from Dry Creek Vineyard block
Clone 115 & 667
100% Pinot Noir
Select vineyard rows featuring Pinot Noir clones 115 and 667 were cropped to lower yields to grow concentrated fruit. The grapes were destemmed and crushed and cold soaked for 2 days for fruit and colour extraction. A Burgundy yeast strain was selected for fermentation, along with a combination of daily punch downs and pump overs during fermetation for the extraction of flavour and colour. Three days of post maceration on skins before light pressing and barreling. The wine matured for 9 months in 225L French oak barrels from carefully selected, family-owned coopers. 25% of the oak barrels were new, and the remainder were neutral oak barrels to preserve the red fruit flavour.
Food Pairing Notes
This Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with game birds, Peking duck, an exotic mushroom risotto, or truffle infused pasta.
