Saint Claire - Pinot Noir - Omaka Reserve

The grapes were carefully transported to the winery for de-stemming, then fruit was must chilled to small open top stainless steel fermenters. Each batch of fruit was cold soaked for four to five days to help extract maximum flavour and to enhance colour stability. Cultured yeasts were employed to carry out the primary alcoholic fermentation and the fermenting must was hand plunged up to six times daily. At dryness each batch was pressed to tank and then racked off gross lees to a mixture of 69 per cent new and 31 per cent seasoned French oak. Each batch was inoculated for malolactic fermentation and aged for 10 months on lees before being selected for this blend. The final wine was stabilized, lightly egg white fined and prepared for bottling.

Small parcels of outstanding fruit were harvested at optimum ripeness and flavour profile from three immaculately tended, low cropping vineyards.

Food match: Ideally matched with a game or lamb dish served with mushrooms or a rich savoury sauce
