Amisfield Pinot Noir 2016
Hand-harvested fruit was cold-soaked for four to five days before the natural fermentation began. Gentle, selective timing of hand-plunging and some pulse air during fermentation helped to extract the delicate skin and seed tannins. Approximately 10% whole-bunch clusters were included in some of the ferments. After fermentation we tasted the wines daily to assess the tannin development and left the wine on the skins for extended time. Maturation was ten months in 20% tight-grain French oak.
