2020 Basket Range Wines Pinot Noir
We have a couple of different aspects of Pinot Noir in the vineyard. After trying different methods for each aspect, I’ve learnt what the fruit works better for. This wine is a blend of MV6 and 777 clones grown in the coolest part of our vineyard, on a steep south-eastern facing aspect. This allows for more phenolic and flavour ripeness, while retaining brightness.
Soil: Deep loam over red clay and sandstone.
Winemaking: A combination of whole bunch and destemmed ferments in 1500L and 2000L vats. Macerated for 10-14 days with gentle daily pump-overs. Matured for eight months in French barriques.
1300 bottles produced.
