2017 Wightwick Vineyard Ballarat Pinot Noir


2017 Pinot Noir – Wightwick Vineyard, Invermay, Ballarat                           

Celebrating our first release Pinot Noir from the little known, but highly liked (around here anyway) Wightwick vineyard at Invermay between Ballarat and Creswick. 50% whole bunches and wild yeast. The wine spent 10 days on skins with daily hand plunging, and occasional pipeage and pump over. MLF was completed in tank prior to being racked to barrel for ageing on light lees. Keen to observe the fruit characteristics from the vineyard 2-5 year old French oak was used. The flavours and finesse of this wine reflect the cool 2017 vintage, and show great promise for future releases.

Bottled January 2018. Only 110 dozen produced. 13.0 % Alc/Vol
