L.A.S. Vino Albino Pinot 2022
The Pinot Noir vineyard is situated three kilometres from the Indian ocean on granite gravelly loam soils. The vines are planted on a gentle south facing slope that rolls down to the Willyabrup brook. The 40 year old vines are not only some of the oldest but also some of the only remaining pinot noir vines in Margaret River and we feel very grateful to be able to make
wine from them. The vineyard a high density planting, leading to vines that yield less with more concentrated and flavoursome fruit.
The fruit was hand picked, chilled overnight and hand sorted prior to being lightly cold pressed as whole bunches, very gently over a few hours. The juice was left to naturally settle prior to a wild fermentation in French barriques. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were fermented and matured separately. The wine went through a full secondary fermentation with fortnightly lees stirring prior to blending and bottling.
Delicate, elegant and balanced with plenty of flavour and texture. Layers of complexity on the palate with flavours of pomegranate, grapefruit, lychee, guava and a hint of sea salt. Super refreshing.
