NEW RELEASE – 2017 COOINDA VALE PINOT NOIR

Each of the four blocks at Cooinda Vale were handpicked and hand sorted, then fermented separately. Fruit is destemmed only (no crushing) and inoculated for fermentation. We favour pumping over during fermentation which typically lasts for 10 days and is then followed by a post ferment maceration of 8-10 days. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

“It’s a very fine wine, and forgive me for saying it, has a distinct echo of Burgundy, albeit many thousands of miles south of that neck of the woods. Dried flowers, almost chamomile, a whiff of soil and spice, red fruits and almond. Medium bodied, deft and sure, with pitch-perfect acidity married to perfectly ripe red fruits, tannin is nutty and saturating, and the finish is cool and long, all that ‘mineral’ stuff, orange peel and perfume playing out to marvellous effect. It may, perhaps, be too subtle for some, but those who seek elegance and poise will be well rewarded.”
