Lothian Vineyards Pinot Noir

Elgin | The Lothian Vineyards Pinot Noir comes from a 2.25ha vineyard planted to two different clones. The fruit was hand harvested, gently crushed and fermented in open fermenters for a period of ten days. Ambient yeasts and manual pigeage were utilised to coax both flavour and colour from the fruit. The must was lightly pressed and racked off into French oak barrique (20% new). Malo-lactic fermentation occured in barrique. The wine was barrel matured for a period of eleven months and lightly filtered prior to bottling to maintain the wine’s integrity and subtle Pinot flavour spectrum.
