Winemaker's Notes

A majority of the fruit for the Charleston Pinot Noir is sourced from our estate vineyards at Lenswood. All fruit is handpicked and rapidly transferred to the winery, where it is destemmed without crushing. Fermenters receive 10 – 30% whole bunches. Time on skins is 10 – 20 days. The wine spends 10 months in new to 6 year old French oak barriques, malo-latic fermentation occurs spontaneously.

Color: Bright, cherry red

Bouquet: Lifted fragrant nose of cherries, rhubarb, spice and a hint of earthiness. Palate: The palate echoes the nose, with a full savoury mid palate structured by gentle dry tannins.
