2017 VINTAGE

The 2017 vintage is a classic in the making. A mild but windy spring led into a cool summer and extended autumn, giving the wines amazing clarity and presence. The 2017 vintage releases are classically proportioned and destined for a long life.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked on 17 March. Hand sorted and gently destemmed into traditional French oak open fermenters (no whole bunches).  Following a four-day soaking, the natural yeast fermentation proceeded.  The wine was pressed off skins after 17 days, into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons (20% new), matured in oak for 11 months and bottled in February 2018. No additions except so2.

 

TASTING NOTE

The Block 6 Pinot Noir is dark fruited and nuanced with fragrance and spice. The wine is long, penetrating and energetic, with a superb silken texture.   Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for 10-15 years.
