Pinot Noir

Solitude Estate

Varietal:100% Pinot Noir
Region:Yarra Valley, Victoria
Maturation:12 months in French oak, 20% of which is new.

From one of the Yarra Valley’s highest vineyards, an elegant 100% estate grown, single vineyard Pinot Noir. Predominantly MV6 clone, the grapes are hand-picked, 100 % de-stemmed; without any whole bunch ferment. No commercial yeasts are added, the berries go through carbonic maceration which brings out fruity characters and softens natural acid. The resultant wine has aromas of lifted rose petal, red cherries, some earthy notes as well as hints of smoked meats and mild spices. The palate is plush, with vibrant red berries, raspberry ripple and hints of dark cherry taking centre stage. Forest floor and cedar elements play a vital support role. Texture is supple and silky. Tannins are velvet smooth, seamless and integrated and result in great length.
