Shiny ‘Little Shiny’ Pinot Noir 2021
The grapes for this wine were handpicked from 3 different vineyards all situated in the Tamar Valley.The Little Shiny is sourced from 3 different vineyards. Firstly from their Home vineyard that was planted on their property in 1998. 0.8 Hectares, 100% Pinot Noir in Rosevears. James also leases another vineyard in Rosevears of 1 Hectare with an average age of 15 years plus purchases fruit from the Glengarry vineyard in the same region, the one his father planted over 40 years ago.Hand picked, then a pre ferment maceration for approx 5 days. 20% whole-bunch fermentation. Fermented in 1.5 to 2 ton stainless steel open ferment tanks. Part wild yeast. Pigeage over the fermentation period. Puts in the basket press with approximately 1 to 0.5 Baume left to ferment. 100% basket press over 24 hours. Build up pressure for 10 minutes then turn off. James was excited to tell me that he loves the pressings as much as free run, helps to offset the high acid the soil produces. Elevage in barrel on full solids, no racking for the full aging period of 10 months. No new oak used. 228ltr.
