YARRA YERING LIGHT DRY RED PINOT SHIRAZ 2017
50% Pinot noir and 50% Shiraz, these varieties complement each other with the perfume and spice of the Pinot and the underlying structure of the cool climate Shiraz.
Pinot noir was fermented with whole berries in 600kg fermenters and hand plunged gently twice daily before basket pressing. Shiraz was 100% whole bunch fermented, left for 3 weeks and barely touched but for some light foot stomping before basket pressing. The individual components spent 9 months in French oak barriques in our underground cellar before blending and bottling.
