JO’S WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE The grapes for this Pinot Noir were picked from single vineyards located in North Eastern Victoria. Grapes were crushed during the cool of the evening to retain their varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout the winemaking process. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a dense, rich colour and allowing for gentle and maximum flavour extraction.
JO’S HARVEST NOTES 2018 was a very good year for quality and the season was warm and dry. Intense flavours came in late this year and we held off picking for as long as possible to allow maximum flavour. We were kept on our toes once we started picking as everything ripened up pretty quickly. The whites are all fruit forward, with lovely fresh acidity whilst the reds have excellent colour and flavour to match. This vintage is a beauty and subsequently we have made some cracking wines which will stand the test of time. JO’S
JO’S FOOD MATCHES This Pinot is a great match with roast duck, rabbit or pork. Also perfectly balances dishes like porcini mushroom risotto, rich pasta dishes or fine cheese.
