PACKSPUR PINOT NOIR 2008
The vines are cropped low to ensure intense fruit and tannins in the wine.The grapes are cold-soaked for several days, fermented in open fermenters and the cap is plunged several times a day to extract full colour and flavour.
The wine then matures in a mix of new and aged French oak barriques for 12-14 months. The style we aim for in the Packspur Pinot Noir has up-front fruit characters of plum and cherries with spicy, gutsy tannins that give the wine a cellaring potential of 2-6 years and reflect the Lowburn terroir.
This cherry and blackberry fruit-driven Pinot Noir has attractive spice aromas and a warm, supple palate with ripe, lingering flavours.
