2017 Fancrest Estate Pinot Noir

$45.00 incl GST
The 2017 Burgundy Chanson Pere shows an intense ruby red color. The nose is marked by fruity notes well balanced by hints of vanilla and violets. On the palate, the wine is balanced and pleasurable and is characterized by the notable persistence of aromas of cherries and strawberries. A long finish with delicate sensations of vanilla and supple tannins completes the tasting experience. Product link.

Handpicked and destemmed into small fermentation vats. Hand plunged twice daily and macerated a full 30 days until tannin development was considered optimal for maturation. Attention given to supple, elegant textures and tannins. Once the wine had been run off its skins at the end of the fermentation, it was put through a full malolactic fermentation in oak barrels to fully bring out the finesse and expressiveness of the aromas. The aging process, which lasted approximately 22 months, then began and took place in 128 litre French oak barriques, very few new. Bottled in lightweight glass without fining, filtering or any preservatives.
