Overview

A very cool growing season with limited sunlight and plenty of rain. Harvesting days were very well planned to avoid constant rain threats. Cooler days allowed the fruit to retain a natural high acidity. Fruits were harvested during the day due to cooler temperatures than usual.

Destemmed only, whole berries were pumped to fermenter. Gentle handling of the ferment was critical due to the finesse and delicacy provided by the cool vintage. Pressing immediately post ferment, or prior to ferment reaching dryness, to minimise big tannin extraction, wines were racked into french oak and stainless steel tank.

Matured for approximately 8 months on malolactic fermentation lees, before a racking and return for a further 5 months maturation prior to final blending. Bottled with minimal fining and filtration.

Sticks Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is a lighter style wine with cherry, plum and raspberry flavours and a savoury finish.
