2017 Denton Pinot Noir – $45

from 270.00

Viticulture

Soil type: Granite

Aspect: North-East

 The Denton Pinot Noir block sits at the very top of our North Eastern slope, and sees the softest morning light and is shielded from the hot afternoon sun. The planting density here is 1m x 1.5m and this high density spacing always gives us more power and concentration while maintaining the lightness and elegance of the vineyard. The granitic sand over granite boulders and long, slow growing season provide a very special and unique terroir.

This unique micro-climate and soil profile contribute lots of bright, fresh red and black fruit, and mineral florals, framed by fine tannin on an acid frame.

Winemaking

Fermented with 80% whole bunches included, wild yeast fermented and held on skins for 23 days with frequent plunging and foot stomping. No temperature control. Pressed to 500 litre French oak puncheons (20% new) and left unsulfured for 12 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration.

Vintage 2017

An excellent growing season and the best Yarra harvest in a generation. It's broken the trend of early/warm harvest and was wonderfully mild, long and slow. Means lots of perfume and high acidity. excellent condition with good acidity and tannin levels. The perfect Spring, Summer and Autumn for growing grapes.
