Greywacke Pinot Noir 2019

The Greywacke Pinot Noir is made from grapes grown in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys and principally sourced from the Yarrum Vineyard, situated on the Brancott / Ben Morven ridge. All the grapes were hand-harvested and then chilled overnight prior to hand sorting. Most of the fruit was then de-stemmed into open-top fermenters, the majority of which also had a percentage of whole-bunch inclusion. The fruit was left to soak on skins prior to the onset of indigenous yeast fermentation, then plunged daily. After fermentation, the wine was pressed, racked and filled into French oak barriques of which 30% was new. Individual clones were barrel aged separately for 11 months, prior to blending and bottling. Imagine a black forest cake, chock-full of juicy cherries and Black Doris plums; served up with a generous dollop of blueberry compote, laced with nutmeg and cloves. This is a deeply coloured Pinot, exuding lush, ripe fruit - highly fragrant with a cedar-like spiciness and hints of hot-smoked nuts. The palate is dense and generous with rich fruit, fine tannins and a delicious spicy finish.
