Serrat Pinot Noir 2018

Serrat Pinot Noir 2018

Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Serrat is the family business of former Yering Station and current Yabby Lake winemaker Tom Carson and partner Nadege Suné. Serrat has 8,800 vines per hectare - more than four times the average density, however their vines carry only a few bunches each. Remarkably, it takes one vine to produce each bottle of Serrat wine; these are genuine, hand-crafted wines of the highest quality.

The 2018 Serrat Pinot Noir is another beautifully crafted, high quality example of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir - as usual our very limited stocks will not last long.

"96 Points. MV6, wild-fermented with 25% whole bunches, 13 days on skins, only pumpovers (no plunging), matured for 11 months in French puncheons (25% new). Abundant varietal fruit flavours; quite rich and will absolutely repay cellaring as floral, spicy notes appear. 13.5% alc. Drink By: 2033 Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

"This wine is from the old block of MV6 Pinot Noir planted in 2001. We added about 30% whole bunch in the ferments in 2018, which has given the wine quite a punchy and fragrant aroma, that evolves nicely as the wine sits in the glass. It was aged in 500 litre French oak puncheons, on lees for 11 months, about 15% new. The bouquet is dominated by the cherry and red fruit spectrum, strawberry, raspberry, spice, cherry, with detailed fragrance and floral notes. It’s a heady mix. The palate is at this stage, quite primary in flavor and tannin profile, but the hallmark silky tannins and lovely flow across the palate is there. It has a generosity and volume of fruit, generously proportioned and long silky finish. Drink 2024-2032" - Serrat Wines.
