Wamboin, Canberra District, NSW
Grown at 850m above sea level in the cool climate of Wamboin on the eastern edge of the Canberra District wine region.
MV6, 115 and 114 clones, hand-picked, 70% destemmed, 30% whole bunches, 3-5 days cold soak, wild yeast open-fermented, 1-2 weeks post-ferment maceration, 28 days on skins, matured for 11 months in French hogsheads (30% new). Made with thought and care, this is a savoury Pinot with tannin and structure.
Words from the Winemaker – This wine is one of my favourite wines I have made. It is ageing beautifully, a rich, complex pinot noir with fresh herb and red rose aromas that jumps out of the glass. Great palate weight and length.
