Onannon Gippsland Pinot Noir

$42.00

This is a blend of two vineyards, one from south Gippsland the other from east Gippsland. The majority of the blend 70% is sourced from respected grower and winemaker, John Ellis, in Berry’s Creek, South Gippsland (18 year old vines) This high density vineyard is planted to numerous clones of Pinot Noir. In 2015 we used predominately 114/115 and MV6 Clones. The other vineyard, from which we take the remaining 30% of the blend, is Lightfoot & Sons in East Gippsland (17 years old, MV6)

The fruit from both vineyards is 100% destemmed into separate fermenters with minimal SO2. The fruit was cold soaked for 6 days after which time fermentation began. Primary fermentation took 8 days with temperatures reaching 34 degrees. The wine was immediately pressed and settled overnight before being racked to barrels to sit on gross lees. The wine was racked prior to bottling in late December. Unfined and Unfiltered.
