Description

2014 Hells Gate Pinot Noir

Winemaker’s Comments

All grapes were harvested in excellent condition at 22 – 25 brix. Fermentation involved hand plunging to yield maximum colour and full flavour extraction. The Pinot Noir has a combination of sweet berry fruits and plum with a spicy savoury character from maturation in medium toast barriques. The lighter soils in the vineyard give this Pinot Noir mineral characters.
