Heirloom Vineyards Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2022/23
This Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Noir was produced from their best Adelaide Hills Vineyard in Kersbrook whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch-by bunch, naturally open fermented, basket-pressed and stored in well seasoned first-use French oak barriques from bespoke coopers. This wine is 50% whole bunch and is aged in 2nd and 3rd use French oak barriques from bespoke coopers for 7 months. This wine is vibrant ruby red in colour, with aromas of blackberry, red berries, and notes of mushroom, pepper, and spice. On the palate, it is well-balanced with natural acidity and powdery tannins. The finish is long and lingering.
