Walnut Block Pinot Noir13% ABV
Extremely expressive Pinot Noir. There is none of ‘cabbage nose’ that is sometimes apparent with this grape. The aroma is fine, rich, and of bright red berry fruit. On the palate, the freshness of fruit is absolute joy. Gentle acidity and fine tannins provide a well balanced structure and decent length.
Planted in 2001 using top-quality Burgundy clones, the fruit is harvested and immediately chilled overnight to 2 degrees C. This preserves all of the delicate flavours. The cold Pinot Noir grapes are then de-stemmed and crushed into open-top fermenters, using natural yeast from the vineyard. The wine is pressed and transferred to French barriques for 9-12 months’ aging.
The Collectables Pinot Noir is a true handcrafted boutique wine that is perfect for drinking now or cellaring for 4-5 years.
