      Tasting Notes

      The Wine

      A wine which we will only produce in years we deem to be exceptional for Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.  The 2016 Reserve Pinot Noir brings together the two finest barriques from the Lenswood and Piccadilly sub regions of the Adelaide Hills to create a wine epitomising the grace, lift and elegance of this truly remarkable vintage.

      Winemaking

      Produced in small batches, all cold soaked and hand plunged in open fermenters.  To create complexity and lift the D4V2 Pinot Noir Clone from Lenswood was vinified using a percentage of whole bunches while the MV6 and 115 clones from Piccadilly were destemmed and fermented as whole berries without crushing.  100% malolactic fermentation aged in French Oak barriques (33% new) for 10 months.  Bottled 8 months prior to release with minimal filtration.
