2017 Back Block Pinot Noir x6
The Drummond Farm Back Block is a robust, masculine style of Pinot Noir which is rewarded when given time to breath.
It was made with a focus on our back block, the majourity of which is planted in clone 5 (UCD5) and a small amount of 667 and 114.
Harvested two days later than the estate Pinot Noir, the Back Block was then maccerated on skins for 12 days before being racked to barrel where is was matured in 6-7 year old french oak barrels for 13 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 July 2018
