Askerne Estate Pinot Noir 2021 750ml

 

WINEMAKING NOTES

The fruit for this wine is a blend of Clone 777 (35%), 5 (28%), 667 (20%) and Abel (17%) grown on the sandy silt soils of the top terrace of the Askerne vineyard. Each clone was fermented separately in open top tanks, each with a 10% whole cluster component.  The ferments were gently plunged for extraction, and then held for a further 3 weeks on skins post ferment.  The individual parcels were then pressed, settled and racked to oak barriques. Here they completed malolactic fermentation and were matured for 9 months before blending.  The final blend has a 17% new French oak component and 17% second fill oak.
