The Tasmanian terroir loves to grow Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir loves the growing season of Frogmore Creek's Campania property. The hand picked grapes are given a forty eight hour cold soak before being inoculated for vinification in a combination of small one tonne and 1½ tonnes open fermenters. Batches are hand plunged three times daily and pressed off skins for completion of primary ferments, followed by transfer to oak for malolactic before racking off lees. The finished wine is treated to extended maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, followed by a cross flow filtration before bottling, to preserve freshness and vitality of fruit.
Medium scarlet red. Pure red cherry and blackcurrant aromas. A palate brimming with currant and cherry, followed by a complex mix of red berry flavours. The fresh fruit characters linger, all supported by a soft, elegant tannin structure. A superb Pinot wine to mate with all good faire, innately suited to Italian pork salciccia and truffled polenta.
