DUNBAR ESTATES Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016
$47.00 – $395.00
Harvest date: 30 March and 05 Aril 2016
Aging: In 15% new oak
The 2016 grape harvest was one of the shortest and consequently one of the most intense harvests ever experienced in Central Otago. The growing season started at around the normal time for bud burst and then, following a period of intense heat, there was an early start to flowering which was both short and successful. Veraison – or ripening – also started at the usual time but it was quite protracted. Pinot Noir Clones: 115, 5, 777 & Abel were harvested on 30/03/2016 & 05/04/2016. 15% new oak with a reasonable portion of 2015 barrels. Contains traces of the traditional fining agent Albumin.
Winemaker: Dean Shaw.
