Crossings Pinot Noir
Within the winery, each batch of Pinot Noir was dealt with individually to emphasize the unique characteristics of each vineyard block. Once the primary fermentations were complete, all batches were put into French oak barriques, of which twenty percent were new. Once in barrel, the wine was chilled and stored for the winter. The onset of spring saw the barrels warmed to encourage natural malolactic fermentation. Following seven months in oak the wine was racked from barrel, blended before fining and then bottled.
This expressive Pinot Noir has lifted aromas of black plums and violets. Ripe berry fruit flavours combine with savoury notes on the palate to produce a wine that is both elegant and approachable.
Enjoy with rich dishes such as lamb tagine, seared duck or pork belly.
