Vine in Flames Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is well suited to the soils and climate of the Dealu Mare region and due to its thin skins, it ripens early. This is potentially one of the best expressions of Pinot Noir we’ve ever tried

In this particular vintage, all the grapes were hand picked and placed into stainless steel trailers. The grapes were then de-stemmed but not crushed in order to achieve the fruity characteristics of this grape variety. They then had a 3 days cold soak at 10°C. After, the wine went through a regular fermentation from 8 to 10 days at a temperature between 25 to 28°C. Only 2% of the wine was matured in oak barrels for six months before it was blended together to make this wine. This was to give the wine a little more structure.

This Pinot is Ruby in colour with complex aromas of raspberry and red cherry. There’s a slight hint of spice from the little bit of oak ageing that some of the wine had. Medium to light bodied wine with lovely soft tannins, giving this wine it’s lovely long finish.
