Crystallum Cuvée Cinema Pinot Noir 2018
Winemaking and Maturation
Fermented using only native yeasts with a ratio of whole clusters (50%) to whole berries (50%) in a stainless steel tank. The total time in tank was 31 days. The wine was then transferred to barrel (25% new) where it remained for 11 months before bottling.
An outstandingly coherent and integrated vintage with a trademark nose of strawberry, rose and sweet Indian spices. Those notes carry through on the palate along with subtle smoke and sea salt, culminating in a remarkably long finish. Firm tannins and bracing acidity provide robust structure that augurs well for ageing through 2030.
