2017 Pinot Noir 'High Elevation'
Vibrant ruby. Sweet herbs, fresh berries, some soil and leather and more red tree fruit dominate the nose. Medium bodied with savoury/sweet red fruits and herbs on the palate. Grippy tannins and fresh acidity. This is the brightest and most fruit driven version of our Pinot Noir we have grown in some time and will provide more immediate pleasure than previous vintages. Now – 2024.
Vineyard: 2 acres planted in 2000 up and behind the winery.
Wine Making: Hand-picked on September 26th 2017. Gently de-stemmed in to open top fermenters. Basket pressed with malolactic taking place in neutral French barrique. Raised in Neutral French barrique for 13 months. Racked twice and bottled unfined and unfiltered in March 2017. Now- 2022.
