Leefield Station Pinot Noir 2019 750ML

TASTING NOTE
The 2019 Leefield Station Pinot Noir delivers aromas of wild blackberries and plum with a hint of tobacco and smoky oak spice. The palate is rich and mouth-filling with an ensuing acidity that marries well with soft ripe tannins and a dark mocha finish.
 
FOOD MATCHING
We recommend pairing the 2019 Pinot Noir with a delicious pork terrine.

WINEMAKING
Lovingly hand-picked fruit was predominately destemmed without crushing into small open-top fermentation tanks. Some whole clusters were included in select batches to add complexity and length to the final assemblage. The grapes were cold-soaked for around 5–7 days before a rapid, warm fermentation. The ferments were hand-plunged 3 or 4 times each day to keep the skins in intimate contact with the fermenting juice. They were then left to macerate for an additional week post-ferment to ensure optimum flavour development and integrated tannin extraction. The young wines were then drained and pressed before being aged in French oak puncheons for 9 months during which time they underwent a full malolactic fermentation.

 

ABV: 13.5%
