Blank Canvas 'Escaroth' Pinot Noir
The 'Escaroth' vineyard is home to dedicated growers Andy and Kyna Laurie. Situated in the Taylor Pass subregion of the Southern Valleys, they first planted vines on their land at the turn of the Millennium.The handpicked bunches were cold-soaked for five days before undergoing wild yeast fermentation. The wine was hand-plunged during its ferment which included 50% whole clusters. The wine was pressed into French oak barriques (35% new) for 12 months, with a further three months in tank to gently and naturally settle. Bottled unfiltered in August 2018. A heady fragrance of peony and violets, red cherry and pomegranate, overlaid with a smoky, earthy savouriness and some whole bunch greenness. The character reflects the perfume and delicacy of the vintage. Juicy and fresh, attractive, elegant style.
