Shadowfax Macedon Pinot Noir 2022 13% 750ml

TASTING NOTES
APPEARANCE
Dark red with bright purple hues and brilliant clarity.

AROMA
This elegant Macedon ranges Pinot Noir has brooding spice aromas including cardamom, star anise, sandalwood and citrus rind. Red cherries, forest floor and graphite give the wines complexity. The wine has intrigue and flair in the glass, evolving through time.

PALATE
Red cherry and dried cranberries spill onto the palate. This generous Pinot has breadth and expanse, yet shows poise from seams of grown ripe tannins. There are complexities galore with dried herb and sandalwood interacting with cherry pith fruits. The palate is long and persistent yet light on its feet, bringing you back for more. This is a powerful Pinot and a fine example of cool climate, high altitude Macedon ranges Pinot Noir.

FOOD MATCHING
Duck pancakes, Pesto pasta, wild mushrooms on toast.

VINIFICATION
Hand harvested fruit was carefully sorted and destemmed with 100% whole berries into small open fermenters. Natural fermentation occurred with daily hand pump overs and limited plunging to extract fine tannins and flavour. After two weeks on skins the wine was pressed then racked into new (25%) and used French Hogs Heads, where it rested and grew. The wine was then blended and filtered prior to bottling in March 2023.

VINTAGE NOTES
A cool spring in the Macedon Ranges set medium size crops. A cool summer and mild autumn led to a very long growing season. The 740 meters above sea level elevation site of Little Hampton has extra cool nights, helping to retain natural acidity in the grapes, being picked in early May. Grapes ripened late in the season with full flavour and phenolic ripeness. Fruit was hand picked in small batches in pristine condition.
