2020 Fighting Gully Road Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula
Very typical of Pinot Noir from Mornington Peninsula, this wine was produced using three parcels of fruit sourced from across the length of the Peninsula - the northern parcel more plummy; the centre used for the whole bunch component (33%); while the cooler southern parcel giving spice and savouriness.
This wine will have the capacity to age and be enjoyed over the next 5 years.
Palate: fine grained tannins provide backbone and length to the wine. Plush, mouth-filling fruits complete the palate giving great persistence
Bouquet: savoury red and black fruits, dried herb and spicy oak
The Vintage: a tale of two vintages. North-east being wiped out by smoke taint, while low crops and cooler conditions in Mornington seeing harvest of miniscule crops continuing through to the end of April
The Vinification: Two thirds of the bunches were de-stemmed; then fermented in stainless steel. One third was fermented as whole bunches. The cap was handled extremely gently with no punching down. The wine spent a total of 14 days on skins prior to pressing.
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Oak Maturation: 12 months in 25% new; and seasoned fine grained Italian coopered French oak puncheons
Bottle Size: 750ml
Alc Vol: 13.5%
