Arfion Pinot Noir 2016
The Arfion Pinot is a vibrant, nouveau style that is made to be drunk early and fresh. It is bright yet has dark edges, lifted campari, red/blue fruits and earthy aromas with a juicy, vibrant mouth-feel and tannin.
Willowlake vineyards, Gladysdale, Yarra Valley.
From three Yarra vineyards that have very distinct soil profiles and micro-climates that span the breadth of the Valley. By blending the three vineyards we can create complexity and interest without too much winemaking interference.
Hand harvested early in the morning to harness the fresh characters of the sites.
The lower Yarra vineyard of Yarra Station had 100% carbonic whole-bunch ferment while the Willowlake Vineyard (approx 20%) and Primavera Vineyard (approx 20%) from the red soils of the Upper Yarra were de-stemmed and left alone.All natural alcoholic and malolactic ferments.
The vineyards were blended post pressing to mature in tank and old barrels to retain their freshness. Minimal sulphur just prior to going to bottle in Spring with no fining or filtration.
