Expressive pinot noir from a densely planted orchard.
Terroir, method of preparation and ripening: Grapes are harvested from an experimental vineyard in Leongatha South with a planting density of up to 17,000 vines per hectare. The soil of the shelter is volcanic basalt and granite. No pesticides or chemicals of any kind have ever been used at the shelter. After removing the stems, the wine ferments spontaneously and macerates for a couple of weeks in tanks. Malolactic fermentation and maturation takes place in oak barrels, where the wine matures for 15 months.
Use: As an accompaniment to grilled monkfish and abalone stew.
Description: The scent is aromatic and floral, with depth as well. The palate is paced by refined tannins, full of spiciness and red fruits, and very long.
