The Story

The hand harvested bunches of Foggy Hill Pinot Noir were destemmed, lightly roller crushed and chilled to 2C on the way to the 0.8 tonne open fermentation tubs. There were no whole bunches incorporated into the fermentation tubs because of the high degree of maturity of the fruit from this warm vintage, requiring no added stalk tannins.

A four-day cold maceration preceded the initiation of fermentation. Fermentation took 8 days of daily hand plunging and reached a peak temperature of 32C. At the completion of fermentation the tubs were sealed down for a further 8 days of maceration on skins.

The tubs were pressed gently in Tapanappa’s air bag press and the wine was immediately gravitated to French oak barriques (30% new) with complete lees prior to malo-lactic fermentation. After malo-lactic fermentation was complete in the winter, the wine was clear racked and a small amount of SO2 was added.

Written Notes

Bold wine on show here, touches of liqueur, with sappy notes suggestive of the inclusion of some stems. This is fine Pinot.

Carries weight, depth and breadth - big and balanced with hints of sweet oak. Still needs a little time to settle into itself, a bit like the teenager that has shot up in stature.

Silken, fine tannin - you just simply cannot escape that depth of flavour that haunts and follows with an impressive. 94
