VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The pinot noir grape variety is well suited to the cool climate environment of the Mount Barker sub-region of the Great Southern. This pinot noir fruit from Moore River Vineyard typically has strong varietal characters.

2022 delivered a wet winter and spring being reasonably dry. Even temperature days and cold nights helped to retain natural acidity in the fruit and allow full flavours to develop.

Harvested on 24th March 2022, the fruit was picked, gently de-stemmed and then cold soaked for two days. A parcel was barrel fermented and underwent natural fermentation in new French oak, the remainder went to small open fermenters and then to new and used oak. The wine spent seven months in French oak barriques, 30% new, before it was prepared for bottling.

THE WINE

A medium bodied pinot noir with lifted aromas of red berries and spices as well as subtle forest floor aromas which will develop further with time in bottle. These characters follow through on the palate. The wine has a medium weight and a gently textured mouth feel with soft and subtly grippy tannins. The Burgundian oak sits nicely in the background. The wine finishes with good length of flavour and a long finish. It is well suited to complement game or light red meat dishes, and it will reward cellaring.
