David Hook 2018 Old Vines Pinot Noir
This wine is produced from grapes grown at our Pothana Vineyard. The vines are 27 years old, low yielding producing less than 2 tonnes per acre annually.
This wine is cherry red in colour and has a spicy aroma with leathery overtones. The palate has fresh cherry fruit flavour, an earthy background, light tannins and soft acids finish the wine. Whole and crushed fruit were layered into traditional open vats for fermentation and hand plunged. After fermentation the wine was stored in French barrels for 12 months and then lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
Harvest Date: 23rd January 2018
