2019 Lignée Shiraz Pinot Noir (Magnum - 1.5L)
Hot notes from Angus Vinden:
What is Lignée? It is what happens when two winemakers get pissed at the pub and decide to make a wine together. In all seriousness, it is a collaboration... handmade by Will Gilbert and myself. We both choose a parcel from our respective wineries which blend perfectly together. 50% Shiraz. Somerset Vineyard, Hunter Valley & 50% Pinot Noir. Borenore, Orange. Both parcels were fermented and matured separately with gentle extraction through ferment, basket pressed to neutral oak and kept on full lees for its 14 month maturation. 85% whole bunch for the Pinot Noir, and whole berry for the Shiraz. The wine is unfined & unfiltered and represents a somewhat modern take on the famous blend created by O’Shea. 400 magnums only!
