2017 Small Island 'South' Pinot Noir
Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Region/Vineyard: Coal River
Volume made: 31 doz
Oak: 3-4 year old French
Winemaking: I very carefully racked the top portion of two large barrels and bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Fruit sourced from a single vineyard in the Coal River Valley. An early ripening site with rich dark soils, the aspect flows down toward the river providing natural frost protection. Around 20% whole bunch foot stomped and just a dash of re shaved oak was added. Unfiltered and unfined with minimal sulfur added.
