EARTHY LIFTED CHERRY
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC BIODYNAMIC / 750ML
A beautiful example of raw but controlled Pinot Noir. Grown at roughly 350masl at there Summit vineyard, Ngeringa has allowed their carbonic macerated Pinot to blossom by remaining relatively hands-off. The wine is pressed to quality oak and left for 11 months without any filtration or fining. Fruit forward with a subtle earthy/ferrous element and ripe stem spice.
From the Producer: A ruby red Pinot Noir that is medium bodied with vibrant, lifted red fruit aromas, along with fine herbal spice and earthy aromas derived largely from carbonic maceration. Fruit flavors include red plums and sour cherries. Texture is crunchy and fresh.
Grown in our east-facing Summit Vineyard, which collects more of the morning sunlight and less of the intense, direct afternoon heat. Altitude ranges between 330m and 360m above sea level and the soil consists of sandy loam over red-orange clay, sandstone and ironstone. Fruit for this wine comes predominantly from the upper and lower sections of the Summit Vineyard, while the middle section goes to our Single Vineyard Pinot. The entire farm is certified biodynamic and is farmed with the rhythms of nature, tending towards a self-sustaining system without the use of synthetic chemical inputs.
Our vineyards are located in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, South Australia, a region reputed for producing some of Australia’s most elegant cool climate wines.
