O'Leary Walker Pinot Noir 2020 Adelaide Hills - 6 Bottles

Availability: In stock

Pretty Good

VINEYARD: This vineyard lies in the heart of the Adelaide Hills on Wenzel Rd just south-east of Oakbank. David and Sue Cherry (nee O’Leary) planted the MV6 Clone of Pinot Noir in 1990. The soil profile is brown loam with limestone and slate schist, contributing to good drainage and moderate vigour. The elevation of this cool climate region consistently offers a naturally balanced acidity to this single vineyard wine. The 2013 vintage had a long even ripening period producing wines with great depth of flavour and intensity. VINIFICATION: The fruit is handpicked and de-stemmed into 2-tonne open fermenters. The must is chilled to 5°C and cold soaked. Once it has naturally warmed up, spontaneous fermentation commences using the natural flora sourced from the vineyard. The ferment is hand plunged four times daily to optimise colour and tannin extraction, whilst also aiding temperature management of the cap. Post-ferment, the wine spends three weeks on skins, further enhancing colour and flavour. It is then gently pressed and racked into new and seasoned Siruge and Dargaud et Jaegle French oak barrels for 8-12 months. We aim to preserve all of the natural flavours of this noble variety; hence it is not filtered prior to bottle. BOUQUET: Lifted fruit, delicate sweet spice and subtle French oak. PALATE: The palate is elegant with rich plum, dark cherry and long fine tannins. The French oak is integrated giving balance and texture to this youthful wine. FOOD MATCH: Fantastic with quail and duck.
