2013 Auntsfield Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir
"Color: Deep Ruby
Aroma: Dark cherry, blackberry and Doris plum aromas are complimented by more savory aromas of dark chocolate, forest floor, cigar box and floral notes.
Palate: The palate of this wine shows a rich silky texture which is full and concentrated. Interwoven flavors of spice, dark fruit and savory characters are revealed by a succulent and fine tannin structure. The structure of this wine is tight, yet rich and full with seamless length.
This wine was made with a minimalist philosophy, designed to enable the characteristics of the grapes and the vineyard to be revealed. The fruit was hand-harvested, hand-sorted, gently destemmed and gravity-fed to tank. Fermented with a combination of indigenous and cultured yeasts, careful hand plunging was utilised to gently extract flavours and tannins from the skins. Maturation occurred in French oak barriques for approximately 10 months." - Winery
