Arfion “Willowlake Vineyard” Pinot Noir 2016

Regular price $299.00

Reviews

2016 Pinot Noir shows spicy cherry, dark berry and campari notes. It’s a savoury, fine style with a soft toasty finish. Lifted aromatics of sweet red fruits, with some darker, earthen characters playing second fiddle. The palate is light-to-medium bodied, with a gentle, seamless palate full of red cherries and raspberries, and faint dustings of spice and tannin. Finishes long and fresh as a daisy. Both playful and serious.

Winemaker Notes

"2016 was fast and furious, with both of our Pinot blocks picked in February. Picked early to retain fresh acidity and bright flavours, 40% of our blend was 100% whole bunch /carbonic fermented with wild yeast for 16 days, after which we pressed direct to old French barriques for malolactic ferment and ageing. The remaining fruit was destemmed but not crushed, to leave as many whole berries as we could. They were held on skins for a period of 16 to 25 days with very little touching. After pressing, the wine was matured in new (12%) and old barrels for another 9 months at cold temperatures without sulphur. This has added a savoury edge and a fine juicy tannin. A bit of sulphur but no fining or filtration pre bottling."
