Maragle
Pinot Noir

Background

Maragle sits at an altitude of 405 meters above sea level, 30 kms south of the Courabyra vineyard making it one of the lowest altitude vineyards in Tumbraumba. The vineyard also sits at the top of a small valley resulting in sinking cold air and rising warm air. In the case of Maragle, its location and proximity to the Snowy mountains to the west measn sinking cold air cools the vineyard rapidly in the evenings. This is important given this is one of the warmest vineyards in the region.

Tasting Notes

Brooding, spicy, smooth nose of sweet elegant red fruits. Good density. The palate is lush and elegant with an herby edge to the smoothly structured red fruits. Quite silky and spicy with a vibrantly long finish.

Winemaking Notes

Hand picked and then fermented with a combination of whole bunches (20%) and destemmed whole berries. Gently hand plunged for 2 weeks during fermentation and pressed directly to 220 litre French oak Barriques (30% new) for 12 months maturation. Bottled without filtration and fining.
