2007 Winderlea Estate Reserve Pinot noir

290 cases produced

Our first “Estate Reserve” was created from a range of blocks in our estate vineyard and represents select barrels from our Estate wine. Using a combination of our Taransaud wood and stainless steel fermenters – fermentation time averaged 5 days. Wines were barrel aged for 9 months in a selection of French oak barrels with about 30% new oak. The Estate Reserve shows a deep garnet color, ripe black fruit and deep cherry, nuanced layers of fruit and earth and a full finish. The Estate Reserve will benefit from 1 – 2 years of bottle aging and we believe has a minimum of 8-12 years aging potential.
