Serrat Pinot Noir 2018

Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.5%

Available for purchase from July 25, 2019.

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.
