Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

100% Pinot Noir from the Seaview Vineyard in Marlborough's Awatere Valley.

Fruit was cold macerated at 6-8 for 6 days before being warmed and inoculated with selected yeast. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with regular hand plunging. A 70% parcel was gently pressed off post primary fermentation into barrel for malolactic fermentation. 20% of the parcel was aged in new French oak barriques, with the balance into second year French oak. The remaining parcel underwent malolactic fermentation and ageing in a small stainless steel tank.

Winemaker's Comments

Notes of dark cherry, violets and spice dominate the nose. The palate is full and structured, yet elegant with flavours of luscious dark cherry balanced with a fine mineral acidity.
