Antiquarian Pinot Noir Shiraz 2016
An antiquarian is a collector of rare or ancient books and curios, a name befitting this rare and exclusive wine. Antiquarian wines, the pinnacle of quality, are hand crafted from only the very best parcels. The 2016 Antiquarian Pinot Noir Shiraz is the first release of this unique blend. Half a tonne of Pinot Noir was hand picked by our winemaking team of Peter Gajewski and Phil Reedman MW, and their families. A multi-clonal vineyard, with 9 clones across the tiny space, it is a very unique Pinot block. The Shiraz was machine picked and crushed on top of the Pinot. Hand plunged and fermented with inoculated selected yeast strain, the ferment temperature peaked at 28 degrees and the wine was on skins for a total of 15 days in the open fermenter. It was then pressed off to tank, settled and racked to mature in seasoned French oak barriques for approximately 10 months. Very light filtration at bottling was used to retain the finesse and elegance of the fruits’ expression
