SHERWOOD ESTATE 2010 PINOT NOIR
The Sherwood Estate 2010 Pinot Noir was produced from selected parcels of grapes grown on our Waipara vineyards – the Terraces, Georges Road, Church Road, Glasnevin and Stirling.
The fruit was harvested in excellent condition over a two week period starting in mid April. The harvested fruit was tipped directly into open top fermenters and cool soaked for up to six days. The cap was hand plunged three times a day during the indigenous fermentation and skin contact lasted for an average of 24 days. It was then pressed and put into oak barrels for nine months for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine was then blended, lightly fined with egg whites, filtered and bottled.
The 2010 Sherwood Estate Pinot Noir displays rich plum and earthy tones on the nose. The palate has a sweet entry which builds in the mouth and is well supported by fruit and oak tannins.
