2007 Pinot Noir Reserve Gladstone

Dark deep red in the glass. Beautiful bright dark berry fruits are slowly opening up. The palate is fulll and lush with nicely matured tannins and a silky spice lashed finish. A powerful Pinot Noir!

There were not much fruits left because of strong frosts in springtime. The result was an extreme little crop of only 10 hl/ha. This is a naturally concentrated wine of a high quality level. To produce a high quality Pinot a lot of intensive manual vineyard work like de-leafing is neccessary. We do handpicking and select the berries again on a sorting table in the winery to ensure that only the sane berries are manufactured to wine. The fermentation on the skins took four weeks to extract the colour and supple tannins. After fermentation the wine was aged for 14 months in new oak. We bottled the wine unfiltered in August 2008.
