Port Phillip Balnarring Pinot Noir 2021 Victoria Mornington Peninsula

$35.95

Port Phillip Balnarring Pinot Noir 2021

Our Balnarring vineyard was established in 1997. The original plantings comprise two distinct areas of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. A third area has been planted to Pinot Noir, exploiting the higher-density planting matrix found throughout the Pinot Noir growing regions of the Old World.

The fruit was fermented in a combination of large-format wooden foudre. Fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts, included a portion of whole bunches, and lasted 16 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques and puncheons (15% of which were new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only for bottling, with a total maturation period of 11 months. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

Punchy aromatics from the outset, the wine offers an array of berry and cherry fruits together with sweet earth spice notes. A juicy core of fruit runs long through the palate, but not at the expense of structure and interest, with herbal spice and oaky tannin supporting and driving. While approachable now, it will greatly reward time in the cellar.
