Manos Negras, Red Soil Select Pinot Noir
A very open and full aroma hit of autumn berries. Rich flavours of bramble, chocolate and plum with some earthy spiciness. 12 months in oak gives a wonderful depth.
After gentle de stemming a cold maceration follows for 2 days. Whole berry fermentation with natural yeasts at a maximum temperature of 22° C. There is extensive punching down for the first 7 days of the 12 day fermentation.
