Elysian Springs 'Silent Waters' Pinot Noir
Details~The Story~ This wine is named in honour of the natural spring located on our property that is the origin of the River Torrens which flows through the heart of the city of Adelaide. ~Tasting Notes~ This lovely cherry-bright Pinot shows dark plum and strawberry fruit with hints of wet loam on the nose and palate, lifted by a touch of dried spice. A medium-bodied wine with integrated complex flavours, rich and lingering tannins. ~Winemaking~ Whole bunches, hand-selected and picked in the cool of the early morning. De-stemmed without crushing the fruit. 30% of this was whole cluster fermented. Remaining fruit was crushed and went through traditional open fermentation with 30 day extended skin contact. These were racked into 50% new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. Bottled directly thereafter without fining and with minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture of our Pinot Noir.
