2020 Langtons Yarra Valley Wine Show
GOLD MEDAL

Crimson Red in colour with a maroon hue. A sophisticated mix of fruit and spice aroma’s on the nose. With crushed strawberry, red cherry and pomegranate, element of spice and a touch of earth from the whole bunch inclusion add complexity. The palate displays a lush and layered density of fruit with dark cherry and red berry flavours with plush fruit tannins woven in adding complexity. There is a soft yet bright acid line providing drive and length to wine before the classic fantail finish of a great Yarra Pinot Noir.

WINEMAKING NOTES
A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine - whole berry/bunch fermentation in open vessels for three weeks followed by a 9 month maturation in French oak barrels.

GROWING CONDITIONS
2019 Vintage - A warm wet spring followed by a dry summer and autumn, with good crops and strong varietal characters. Selection for this Pinot Noir focused on premium fruit from the cool slopes of the Upper Yarra Valley, Woori Yallock (Henk) and Gladysdale (Willowlake).
