The grapes were picked and then underwent a five day cold maceration period before being inoculated for fermentation. The cap was plunged 2-3 times daily during fermentation. A further 3-6 days of skin contact followed the fermentation period before the wine was drained to oak barrels for an immediate malolactic fermentation and ageing.
The 2016 Old Coach Road Pinot Noir is warm and varietal. Summer berry fruits, notes of plum and gentle savoury spices define the nose and palate. The wine has a long, warm generous finish that lasts on the palate.
