Pinot Noir

Wightwick & Kyneton Ridge Vineyards

Fine cool climate Pinot from the heart of central and western Victoria.

"Fresh ruby. It's always interesting to see how a sparkling winemaker approaches a grape like pinot noir. John Harris, ex Domaine Chandon, understands nuance from his sparkling training and delivers it. Fine-boned with black cherry, rhubarb, dried flowers, bay leaf. Comes together nicely on the palate with a kind of crystalline cranberry presence." Jeni Port on the 2018 Pinot - Halliday Wine Companion

Tasting
Notes

Fermented with 25% whole bunches

From the Wightwick vineyard and the Kyneton Ridge Vineyard in the Macedon Ranges. Ripe and lush bouquet of bright red cherry and strawberry fruits. Light stemmy spice and crunch, medium bodied with lingering earthy mushroom and sweet spices. Gently handled with 25% whole bunches and wild yeast fermentation. Matured in French oak hogsheads (20% new). The bright red fruit notes and flavours reflect the mild to warm 2019 vintage. John Harris – Winemaker

Clear, bright crimson-purple; a lovely pinot, Ballarat providing finesse and length to its array of red fruits, the perfume in the background sure to grow, the lingering finish a farewell kiss. It's a 50/50% choice of consumption tonight or in 5+ years time.
