2017 Seville Estate Old Vine Reserve Yarra Valley Pinot Noir
Vines planted ’72; 70% whole berry/30% whole bunches, wild yeast–open ferment, 23 days on skins, matured in French oak (30% new) for 10 months. Vivid crimsonpurple; a majestic pinot, unrolling its beautiful tapestry of wild strawberry and forest berries, accompanied by featherlight, but persistent tannins. I checked its quality by swallowing some at 8.30am. Screwcap. 13.8% alc.
