St Huberts Pinot Noir 2015
St Huberts Pinot Noir is designed to be a 'fuller' style Yarra Valley Pinot, with more depth and concentration than many of our local brethren. Fruit is sourced from the St Huberts vineyard and other warmer sites - particularly on the Lower Yarra Valley flats. The use of the 114 and 115 clones brings riper 'fleshy berry' characters all the while delivering fantastic structure. In the winery, St Huberts utilises a percentage of whole bunches in the ferments. Wild yeast, a little barrel fermentation, some time on lees, and a lick of good French oak add complexity to the wine. Most importantly this wine stays varietally characteristic. It looks and feels like Pinot Noir and shows great beauty in its regional representation. The wine is light bodied – a ripe year showing generous red fruits and reasonably structured tannins. The wine is even and supple in the mouth – a hint of blood plum and nutmeg preceding a long cherry and toast finish.
