    Pinot Noir

    Pinot Noir (93%) and Riesling (7%) from Kinvarra Vineyard, Plenty (timtumili minanya/ Upper Derwent Valley) grown on South East Tasmanian dolerite with traces of limestone. This wine was 2 ferments all de-stemmed. One from the newer plantings and an the other from the original home block planted in the late 1980's. All of the newer plantings are MV6, with the home block a massale of sorts. Out of the home block we also de-stemmed 100kg of Riesling into each ferment. They were both on skins for about 2 weeks and only plunged. Pressed separately to old puncheons before being racked up together and bottled in January. Delicate with notes of cherry and berry. The riesling component really gives a drive and freshness to the pallet.
