2018 Apricus Hill Pinot Noir
This Pinot noir was fermented in small 1 tonne batches with twice daily plunging of the ”cap” formed by the gape skins. Maturation for 10 months in new and second fill French oak on yeast lees has introduced a creamy mid palate texture. In an effort to preserve the subtle complexities, this Pinot has been bottled unfined and unfiltered. A clear crimson with youthful purple hues.

Bright red fruits combine with hints of darker plums and cherry with an earthy, gamey mid palate with hints of mushroom and a spicy finish of soft tannins. A vibrant lifted nose of black cherry and strawberry complemented by spicy vanillin French oak. This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.
