‘Z’ PINOT NOIR
In the vineyard: Slavyantsi village, Dermen vineyard
Single vineyard Pinot Noir. Grapes hand-picked and hand-selected multiple times on sorting tables.
In the Cellar: Fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After a short period of post-fermentation maceration the wine was drained off the skins and 100% of the lot was aged in French barriques for 12 months. Kept for 9 months in bottle at our controlled-temperature cellar before release.
TA: 4.9 g/l
Residual sugar: dry
In the glass: Our top Pinot Noir, offering gorgeous fruit and ending with a sense of opulence and finesse. Has a vibrant core of vivid raspberry, black cherry, plum, and anise, all gaining momentum as the full body rolls on. Ultra-fine tannins support the firm structure, finishing with cedary toasty oak, espresso notes, and our hallmark mineral finesse.
Recommended Cellaring: 3-10 years
