Saint Clair Origin Pinot Noir 2017

100% Pinot Noir sourced from a number of specifically chosen low cropping vineyards from the Southern Valleys region of the Wairau Plain.

Each batch was held cold for 5 days prior to fermentation. The juice was then inoculated with yeast for the primary alcoholic fermentation and hand-plunged up to 8 times daily. When dry each batch was pressed to tank, settled and racked off gross lees to stainless steel tanks and a mixture of new and older seasoned French oak. Underwent 100% malolactic fermentation before being blended, fined and lightly filtered.

Winemaker's Comments

Aromas of mixed dark fruits, fresh cherries and a hint of prunes and spice. A rich palate with a lovely fine structure displaying a medley of berry-fruit flavours, cedar and spice. The finish is long and persistent, incorporating flavours of freshly ground coffee beans and toasty oak.
