2012 Pinot Noir
Tasting NotesBright cherry-coloured wine with nuanced nose with lots of cherry, a gentle minerality and hints of earth and spice. The palate is intense with flavours of cherry, red currant and a long finish.
Winemaker NotesEach year the Estate Pinot Noir from Flat Rock Cellars is a blend of more than 15 different parcels of Pinot Noir within our vineyard. Each parcel is hand-picked and fermented in 5 tonne batches and kept separate until blending decisions are made in July the following year. The fruit is destemmed into vat where it will remain on skins between 14-30 days before the wine is drained off its skins and gently pressed and then racked to barrel. Each parcel remains separate in barrel until we make our blending decisions and rack the wine in July or August of the following year. This wine was very gently filtered to retain the fruit core and depth of the wine before bottling.
