Lightfoot & Sons Cliff Block Pinot Noir 2017 (Gippsland)

More savoury and textural than the Myrtle Point Pinot Noir, yet highly aromatic. Black cherry, dark plum, earthy spice and tannin structure. The Cliff Block Pinot Noir has a full and textured palate with superb varietal fruit character, complexity and length. An exceptional example of Gippsland Pinot Noir.

“Our Pinots really shine with four to five years of bottle age. The primary fruit has morphed into an amazing herbal, earthy and forest undergrowth array of complexity. A deliciously intriguing wine which I like to decant to help show off the wines hidden power ” – Alastair Butt, Head Winemaker

The Cliff Block is planted on a limestone bluff high above the Mitchell River at the southern end of the Myrtle Point Vineyard. The exposed site is naturally low yielding and consistently produces Pinot Noir with great intensity and complexity.

Handpicked fruit was gently destemmed and added to the fermenter with the inclusion of approximately 25% whole clusters. The fruit was chilled and allowed to cold soak for two days before being warmed up and inoculated with the yeast IOC Révélation Terroir. The ferment was hand plunged twice daily to extract colour and structure. At the completion of fermentation, the wine was pressed to tank and both the free-run and the pressings fractions combined, before being transferred to barrel the following day. We used 35% new French Oak barrels in the blend, made by the coopers Sirugue, Mercurey and Bossuet. 11 months ageing in the cellar where the wine underwent Malo-Lactic fermentation. This wine was neither filtered nor fined prior to bottling, and a natural sediment may remain. Vegan Friendly.

2017 was a year most remembered for being easy to work with from a grape growing point of view. The kind of year when the weather doesn’t throw any surprises and lets the Viticulturalist grow high quality grapes. The kind of year you hope for every year. A wet winter followed by a fairly mild spring allowed the vines to set a very even crop supported by a very healthy and active leaf canopy. No heat waves or major rain events let the vines continue to develop beautiful small bunches with great flavour concentration. Although overall yield was slightly below average, the flavours were excellent. Harvest occurred in-line with the long term average, starting in early to mid-March.- Winery Notes
