Coates The Pinot Noir
After hand picking the fruit, this Pinot was 25% whole bunch fermented with the balance crushed and destemmed across a selection of four clones. A natural yeast fermentation proceeded over a period of two weeks before basket pressing and transferring to French oak barriques (Nadalie, Remond and Chassin) of which one third were new. Maturation was over the course of 12 months with a single racking. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Mid red in colour with a hint of crimson to the hue. The nose provides elegant cherry and strawberry fruits accompanied by savoury notes and a dash of toasty oak. The light-bodied palate offers delicate forest fruits intermingled with cinnamon, dried herb and mocha accents.
