Gibbston Valley China Terrace Pinot Noir
Premium Single block Pinot Noir from China Terrace in Bendigo.
Two clones, 667 and 777 were used in a number of small scale ferments, each with a different proportion of whole cluster. Maceration time varies according to the whole cluster proportion; typically this ranges from 14 days (100% whole cluster) to up to 28 days (0-20% whole cluster).
After pressing, the wine spends 11 months in barrel (30% new). The wine is assembled, then bottled without fining, filtration or cold stabilisation. The finished wine has 49% whole cluster
“Deep red coloured. Serene and calm, the wine is suffused in a lovely earthiness. Garlanded with pretty red fruit aromatics, it opens into a sturdy wine, with typical China Terrace tannins punctuating the palate. Complex and brooding, with many years ahead of it.”
Full bodied & firm tannins, will reward further patience in the cellar.
