Harvest Pinot Noir
Northern Adelaide Hills Grower's Cooperative
Variety: Pinot Noir
Region: Birdwood, Adelaide Hills
Soil: Alluvial Quartz-Shot Clay
Throughout the past few vintages - we’ve had the opportunity to play around with various clones, viticulture and whole-bunch use for Pinot Noir - but we really think we’re onto something in 2017. Bring things back-to-basics - yummy, delicious and uplifting Pinot Noir. We’re not searching for complexity - we’re searching for playfulness - and we get it in spades on this release.
Method: 5 days on skins, wild ferment, 10% whole bunch, matured in stainless steel
Notes on the 2017 Vintage: In stark contrast to recent vintages, the 2017 Harvest provided optimal conditions for us to craft wines that emphasis their natural acidity and vibrant texture. A long, slow ripening period characterised by cool weather, without many incidents of rain. For our style of winemaking, this vintage was ideal and we’re super excited to release these wines!
