2017 Estate Pinot Noir x3

$93.00Price

The 2017 Drummond Farm Pinot Noir is a true expression of what the vineyard developed into in such a challanging climatic year, with a wide array of Pinot Noir clones planted in the vineyard. We chose two rows from each clone and co-fermented them together with 23% whole bunch. 
12 hour cold soak with cap managment twice daily helped bring out the best in what each clone had to offer.

A significantly more refined, eligant, perfumed selection of clones that when managed well the clones used have the ability to become a high quality wine.


The wine was matured in 6-7 year old french oak barrels for 10 months on fine less.

We are proud to say this wine is unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur prior to bottling!


Grown in 2016 - Harvested in 2017 - Matured in barrel until 2018 and finally bottled in March 2018


Clones used: 114, 115, 667, UCD5, UCD6 and 10/5

Bottles produced: 1320

12.5% ABV

  • Good to know

    'Fining' - is the addition made to the wine of a small amount of protein such as bentonite (clay), isinglass (fish bladder, not even kidding) or egg whites. These proteins then bind to small particles already present in the wine, which eventually become sediment in the bottom of the barrel or tank.

    'Filtering' - The winemaker can push the wine through a medium, which will prevent any further particles (floaties) being present in the final wine. It is often used to clarify and brighten the visual appearance of a wine.

    Both of which are also used to remove any faults, off aromas or bacteria which may be present in the wine, but at the same time can strip colour, positive aromas, structure and complexity of a wine.

    Perfect, I'll drop the wine off to you personally. I would love to introduce myself and explain a bit about the wine you have just bought!
