Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

100% Pinot Noir sourced from two different locations in Yealand's Seaview Vineyard in Marlborough's Awatere Valley, grown in one of the flattest and most sheltered parts.

The two parcels were picked one week apart when the fruit was showing perfect
ripeness and balanced fruit flavours. The parcels were cold macerated at 6 to 8 degrees for 5 days before being warmed and inoculated with selected yeast. A fast, hot  fermentation proceeded with regular hand plunging. Post primary fermentation, the parcels were gently pressed off, settled for 24 hours then racked off heavy lees and aged in a mixture of large format French oak cuves and barriques. Remained in oak for 9 months, then stabilised and filtered prior to bottling

Winemaker's Comments

Exhibits notes of sweet dark cherry, violets and smoky-spice. The palate is full and plush, yet lively, with flavours of cedar and red liquorice balanced with silky tannins.
