NEW RELEASE

winemaking

A blend of Yarra Valley Pinot (55%) and King Valley Gamay (45%). The MV6 Yarra Pinot had a 4 day cold soak and was blended from three ferments, all with varying whole bunch and whole berry carbonic maceration inputs; King Valley Gamay also had a long cold soak but was a blend from two ferments, one 100% destemmed and the other 100% whole bunch. Both the Pinot Noir and Gamay had indigenous ferments with minimal plunging and both had some barrel ferment inputs. Natural malo-lactic fermentation.  No fining or filtration. Bottled late June 2018 under screw cap.  Serve chilled in the Summer months.
