The Smuggler's Boot Pinot Noir Elgin, 2017

Elgin

Grape Variety

Pinot Noir

A Pinot Noir with all the hallmarks of a much more expensive Pinot wine. It is a translucent ruby colour with redcurrants and other red fruits aromas mingling with fresh herbs. On the palate it is supple and elegant, light in tannin with a long lingering finish. It was produced from three French clones of Pinot Noir (PN667, PN115 and PN113) cultivated in Elgin and picked between February 14th and 24th, 2017. After sorting and destemming the grapes, these were left to macerate in open top fermenters for three days prior to the onset of fermentation. The wine was racked into a combination of French oak barrels and breathable plastic eggs for malolactic fermentation and matured for 11 months.
