2021 Carrodus Pinot Noir


Bright crimson colour. Rose petals and cherry fruits. Highly aromatic with some oak adding a vanilla sweetness. An elegant and silky fruit profile, cherry-soft, the palate is silky, seamless and expansive. Some graphite and oak spice lend a fine tannin structure to the finish.

Hand harvested and destemmed without crushing to retain as many whole berries as possible into the Yarra Yering 600kg small fermenters. Some stalks returned to bring lift and structure, as Dr Carrodus used to do. Hand plunged twice daily for gentle extraction before gentle pressing. Maturation in small French oak barrels, 35% new for 10 months.
