SMALL VALLEY PINOT NOIR 2016

Gumeracha was known by the Peramangk people as “Umeracha” meaning watering place. Our vineyards sit in the beautiful Torrens Valley 36km northeast of Adelaide. The sheltered vines trail into an intimate valley where a central teardrop pond takes the sky. The valley feels sacred and alive with greens and golds, a perfect place to create something beautiful. This along with and being 360m above sea leave and an average rain fall of 756mm lends its self to the cooler wine varieties and wine styles. Sandy loam over shale with overlaying clay and sandstone. Help make up such a diverse site.

Nose: An inviting and perfumed Pinot, with cranberries and sweet kirsch notes
Mouth: Medium-bodied and silky, with supple red fruits and a pleasingly refreshing acidity.
Winemaking notes: The 2016 Pinot Noir was harvest on the 4th March 2016. Fermented in open fermenters. The 100% whole bunch, wild yeast sets the tone whilst the 25% new French oak adds length and complexity. Black cherry, currant and a hint of spice from stalks, come’s a wine with a little hint of mocha.
