Description

Shannon Rockview Ridge Pinot Noir 2018

This one’s a berry extravaganza! Bright red colour. A beautiful Pinot noir with a Burgundian complexity of ripe strawberry, cherry, raspberry, and red currant. The red fruit flavours are spliced with woody layers that bring truffle, mushroom and spice to mind. Elegant and textured with gentle tannins and a lively acidity.

Considerable emphasis on vineyard site selection and identification, within the variations of three basic components of the soil: clay, sand, and stone. Each parcel is vinified and matured separately to enhance its individuality, before combining in the final blend.

The Pinot Noir bunches are chilled to 3°C before being sorted on a conveyor and de-stemmed. The berries are then hand sorted before cold maceration ensues for 3–6 days at 8°C. Slower fermenting cultured yeasts are used for some of the fermentations, while approximately 80% of the blend is wild fermented. Fermentation temperatures vary between 26–30°C, depending on the nature of the sites. After pressing, the wine is racked and left to complete its malolactic fermentation and maturation in oak barriques. maturation in 228L barriques lasts for approximately 12 months in 20% new oak, 40% 2nd fill and 40% 3rd fill. The oak used is of a tighter grain and medium toasted.

Best drunk now till 2023.
