2018 Petrichor Pinot Noir - 30% Whole Bunch (Tea Tree)

Made from a single vineyard located in Tea Tree, Coal River Valley, Tasmania.

The one tonne of fruit was hand picked then de-stemmed retaining the whole berries into the fermenter (20% whole bunch). The fruit was cold soaked for almost a week before inoculating fermentation. Gentle plunging during the extended fermentation and then pressed once the wine had fermented ‘dry’. Matured in older french oak barriques the wine was left for 10 months until bottling. Minimal Sulphur. No Fining. No Filtration.

Bottle January 2019. Release date September 2019. Only 808 Bottles produced.
