Our Pinot Noir is a 50/50% blend of fruit from the Yarra Valley and our own Estate Vineyard site. The wine is tank fermented and then tansferred to French oak. This wine is matured deep underground in our granite maturation cave.
2012 Tasting notes: Old fashioned magenta colour; Satsuma plums, twigs, cold tea and exotic spice notes of cinnamon and mandarin rind. Brooding and mysterious with a captivating aroma. It has elements reminiscent of '89 and '92 with additional layers of complexity. The initial palate impact provides ripe plum notes with a striking corset of fine savoury tannin that focuses and defines the wine. Powerful yet elegant, ripe but not sweet, it will require time for the wine to unravel its hidden magic. Without question the most complex and beautiful structured Pinot to come from Giaconda.
