Pinot Noir

Pemberton 2015

Pemberton has the climate and environment to make its own very interesting style of
Pinot Noir, this vintage I worked with fullyripe fruit and I have endeavored to display this
extra level of flavour in this wine. I have extracted more tannin than normal by
fermenting the wne on skins longer than usual this has produced a Pemberley vineyard
wine with more depth and ripe forest floor characters but is still a soft and approachable
red wine

Vintage Conditions

In 2015 we had a dry spring, followed by a quite warm summer with a little early autumn rain. These
ripening conditions with warm day temperatures produced healthy canopies carrying low to medium
yields. This vintage provided fine fruit flavours showing wild strawberries and forest floor characters
with soft tannins.


Vineyard

Planted in 1995 in the Eastbrook area of Pemberton, the Pinot Noir vineyard
was planted on deep karri loams. The vines are cane pruned and grown using
minimal inputs and lots of manual canopy management.

Winemaking Notes

Grapes were harvested at in the cool of the night and fermented in small an
open-top fermenter with plenty of refrigeration that enabled a long cold soak,
(this intensifies the fruit flavour and tannin structure) prior to a natural
fermentation that continued for 10 days. After the primary fermentation, the
wine was run to French oak barriques for malo-lactic fermentation with the barrel
selection being paramount. After minimal handling and 12 months in oak, the
wine was bottled in January 2016.
