HollyWild Pinot Noir2018

Our Holly range is the best we produce. As our reserve range, named after the owners’ daughter, they are a stand out medal winners vintage to vintage.

This wine is harvested from the very best parcels of fruit on our Home Estate, typically from low yielding vines on the lowest vigor areas within the vineyard.

Tasting notes

Bold purple, ruby-magenta on the rim.

The nose is a weave of dark-berry fruits, plums and cocoa, along with herb, whole cluster stem and baking spices. Medium-full bodied, the palate is structured on the whole cluster stems, with dense ripe red fruit and savoury, earthy tannins that balance the mid palate and draw out the length.

Vinification

Hand-picked, this one tonne of Abel Pinot Noir made its way to the winery on the 30th of March 2019 with sugar levels at 25° Brix. The intact clusters were carefully sorted and placed into an open top fermenter where they were gently pigéaged to encourage fermentation utilizing wild yeasts from our vineyard. Peak temperature was 32°C. Total skin contact was 11 days before the free run wine was taken to seasoned French oak barrels for 7 months. No additives. No fining. No filtration.
