Totara Pinot Noir 2016

Totara Pinot Noir 2016

Vinification

The Pinot Noir fruit for this wine was cold soaked for up to 5 days before being fermented in a mix of 5 and 10 Tonne open top fermenters. Fermentation was carried out by naturally occurring yeast, with an average duration of 5 – 7 days during which the cap was plunged twice daily to ensure gentle colour and tannin extraction.

Maturation

Where possible the wine was allowed extended time on skins following ferment before being pressed to 225 Litre French oak barrels for maturation.

Aroma

Bright and lively on the nose showing pretty aromas of red berry fruits, plum, spice and a subtle floral lift.

Palate

The palate is soft and full on entry, with a lovely core of red berry fruits complimented by underlying suggestions of savoury herbs, earthy porcini mushroom, and spice. A fi ne tannin profi le and bright acidity ensure a clean fi nish and persistence of fl avour.

Cellaring Potential

Cellar for up to 5 years.
