2016 Pinot Noir/ Gamay
{Driftwood}

 LAST FEW CASES

winemaking

A blend of Yarra Valley Pinot (68%) and King Valley Gamay (32%). The MV6, 114 and 115 Yarra Pinot had a 4 day cold soak and a 100% whole bunch fermentation as well as some carbonic maceration; King Valley Gamay also had a long cold soak but was mostly destemmed.  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 July 2016 under screw cap.  Serve chilled in the Summer months.

 nose

Red cherry, plum and earth. Hints of peanut shells and beetroot. Orange rind and blueberry in the background.

palate

Light bodied, plush and fine boned but with depth and sufficient padding. Plump and juicy mid palate with a lovely plum and earthy back palate. Beautifully rustic and delicious.
