Kerri Greens Foothills Pinot Noir 2019
Hand harvested, a selection of rows from the Silverwood vineyard. Vineyard established 1998, managed by Kerri Greens since 2016. Fully destemmed directly to bins by gravity, as softly and slowly as possible, no crush. The focus being on keeping the berries as whole as possible. There was no addition of sulphur or yeast and the must was left undisturbed until fermentation naturally began 5 days later. Plunged softly, lovingly, daily. Left to mature in three Francois Freres Puncheons - 25% new - for a full 12 months.
"Certainly the most typical Pinot we have conjured in our short history. No Addition other than Sulphur." - KG
Lovely red fruits. hints of bitter amaro and pepper. Lush and concentrated, yet refined and elegant. Wonderful Pinot
