2015 Limited Release Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir (100%)
A select pick of five different Pinot Noir clones, the fruit was destemmed and cold soaked for five days before being inoculated for ferment. Once fermentation was complete the resulting wine was pressed off skins and matured in French oak puncheons for 12 months. The individual barrels were then tasted, blended and prepared for bottling.
VINEYARD / SOIL
The Orange region of New South Wales is one of Australia's newest premium regions being favoured for its high altitude cool climate. Situated approximately 270km west of Sydney the topography and soils of the Orange region are dominated by the extinct volcano, Mt Canobolas. The present day peak of the mountain is at 1400m and vineyards in the region are planted at elevations as high as 1100m with the lowest elevations in the region being 600m.
Soils in the central part of the region are derived from the basaltic lavas of the old volcano and primarily consist of deep red to brown free draining clay loams.
