Onannon Leongatha Single-Site Pinot Noir - Gippsland - 2019Regular price $59.00
The wine is a mix of several clones: D5, MV6 and 777. The grapes were destemmed into an open stainless-steel pot and fermented with indigenous yeasts. The fruit spent 10 days on skins. It underwent natural malolactic fermentation. Fermented in used oak barrels. Racked, filtered and put to bottle with no fining.
"Sweet meats and sweet-sour cherries, earth, dust, garden herbs and smoked cedar. This is a light-but-insistent style, done well. It’s complex in a casual, almost off-hand way; its complexity feels inherent. It has excellent length. This ticks all the boxes, particularly if you’re prepared to stash it away for a few years."
