SKU: 2018 Yabby Lake Block 1 Pinot Noir

Our philosophy is to craft single vineyard wines of great purity and character, reflective of our site and the season in which it was grown. When a parcel stands out for its individual personality, we take a small amount of that parcel and bottle it separately under our Single Block label.

The 2018 season was characterised by a warm and extended summer. The wines are intensely flavoured, yet poised and balanced, ensuring their longevity.

The fourth release of Block 1 Pinot Noir since we launched the program in 2008. 

 

 

 

 

Winemaker Notes
Handpicked on 13 March from Block 1 (sub-blocks 1.1 and 1.4), 100% MV6 clone. Hand sorted and gently destemmed (leaving 25% whole bunch in both 1.1 and 1.4 parcels) into a traditional French oak fermenter. Following a 3-4 day soaking the fermentation proceeded, peaking in temperature at 32ºC. The wine was pressed off skins after 14 days into tight grain French oak 500L puncheons for malolactic fermentation and maturation. It remained in oak for 11 months, and was bottled in February 2019. (Alc 13%)
Tasting Notes
Red cherry, forest berries, Asian spice, rose petals and a perfumed note highlight the aromas. The palate has a fine structure with supple tannins, a silky texture and volume of fruit that carries the long finish. Extremely fine and poised. Carefully stored, this wine will cellar for 8 – 12 years.
