    The grapes for the Shannon Rockview Ridge Pinot Noir grew on three different soil types: clay, sand and stone. These different soils give the wine a range of complex and seductive nuances and aromas, from raspberry and strawberry to currant and intense cherry. A wine of powerful stature and at the same time remarkable elegance with an impressive spectrum of light red to dark berry notes. An iron fist in a velvet glove!

    Treatment in the cellar

    On arrival at the winery, the grapes were first cooled down to 3ºC and then carefully hand-picked and destemmed. This was followed by a three to six day cold swelling phase at a controlled 8ºC. The oenologist opted for slow-fermenting yeast, while 80% of the wine was left to natural or wild fermentation by the yeasts naturally present in the environment. The fermentation temperature was 26 - 30ºC. After pressing, the wine was transferred to French barriques where the malolactic fermentation was completed and the wine was allowed to mature for 12 months. 20% of the oak barrels were new wood, while 40% were second and 40% third filled.
