2015 KYNETON RIDGE ESTATE PREMIUM MACEDON RANGES PINOT NOIR
RRP $45 / 2023
20yo vines, whole berries open-fermented, 4 days on skins, matured in French oak for 18 months. Full crimson-purple; a medium to full-bodied pinot that has retained varietal expression in a plum/black cherry framework. The leisurely development of its ’12 sibling reinforces the idea that this wine has excellent potential, as it is better than the ’12 was when first tasted. 13.5% alc.
OWNER AND WINEMAKER John Boucher What can you tell us about this wine’s production?
Our MV6 vines were hand-pruned and maintained, then hand-picked early morning in late March. It went into the open vat, with 20 per cent wholebunches. It spent eight days in the open fermenter, with regular plunging, and then 11 months in French and Hungarian oak to mature.
