2017 Silent Waters Pinot Noir
A winery established by the Seppeltsfield and once owned by the famous Penfolds Estate, it is a winery rich in Australian winemaking history. It also has a heavy focus on sustainability and their wines are consistently awarded medals at wine shows throughout the world. The best part? Their wines are recognised for over-delivering on quality for their price point!
This wine is named in honour of the natural spring located on our property that is the origin of the River Torrens which flows through the heart of the city of Adelaide.
Whole bunches from our most distinctive Pinot Noir were hand-selected and picked in the cool of the early morning then destemmed without crushing the fruit. 30% of this was whole cluster fermented, whilst the remaining fruit was crushed and went through traditional open fermentation and 30 day extended skin contact. It was then racked into 50% new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. The wine was then bottled directly thereafter without fining and with minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture of our Pinot Noir.
We hope the silent waters run pure through the heart of this wine!
