Pinot Noir, ‘Napoleone Vyd – Yarra Valley’, Punt Road

Hand-picked followed by a 5 day cold soak in 2t and 5t stainless steel open fermenters. 20% whole bunches with indigenous primary and malolactic fermentation, left on skins for 4 days post ferment. After fermentation the parcels were lightly pressed and racked to a variety of French oak barrels (20% new) where the wine was matured for 10 months.  Minimally filtered and fined.

Tasting Notes

Pomegranate and bright boysenberry with lightness and punch, woodsy undertones, wildflowers, and sage. Silky and seamless across the palate with an edge of pink peppercorn and balanced whole bunch goodness. —Tim Shand, Winemaker
