The 2018 Sherwood Pinot Noir displays ripe, sweet dark fruit notes with an edge of subtle oak complexity on the nose. The palate is rich and round, supported by fine grain tannins.
Selected parcels of Pinot Noir from our Sandy Creek Vineyard have gone into producing our 2018 Sherwood Pinot Noir. Harvesting the fruit early April in great conditions it was transported to the winery and tipped into 5-tonne fermenters. After a six-day cool soak, the fermentation began on its own accord. The cap was hand plunged twice a day over the 17-day skin contact period. The wine was then pressed off skins, aged for 5 months in barrel, lightly blended, fined and bottled.
