2021 Whitlands Pinot Noir

Regular price

Notes from Konpira Maru:
100% Pinot Noir, Wild fermented under the pine trees next to the vineyard in 500L tubs. Gentle daily plunging to aid extraction of the soft tannins but to retain the forest floor/briar tones that make this such a classic pinot. 2 week fermentaion on skins and then basket-pressed just before ferment finishes. Settled on the vineyard and then racked and transported back to our Melbourne headquarters. Transfered to 90% old french oak and 10% new and left for 9 months, with regular topping. Racked from barrel into tank for the final blend and then bottled unfined and unfiltered with the only addition being a touch of sulphur. A subtle and elegant Pinot, one for the purists. Black forest fruits and forest undergrowth which will open in the glass over time. Light and delicate but with concentration coming through in the mid palate and a persistent finish. Best enjoyed with pork neck steak, grilled brussel sprouts with a light cranberry jus.
