  • Vavasour Felix's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

Dark plum and cherry aromas, with subtle hints of spice. Ripe and rich layers of fruit on the palate lead to a velvety finish. This is a single-vineyard wine with pure expressions of its variety and true reflections of the terroir of the estate vineyards. 


Winemaking

This special bottling of Pinot Noir showcases the very best of Vavasour estate and is made only in years when fruit is of exceptional quality. Careful canopy and yield management, including leaf plucking and shoot thinning ensure great concentration and character. High-quality, low yielding clones (5 & 115) have been carefully matched to individual mirco-blocks within the vineyards. To extract optimal colour, flavour and tannin, we use traditional, Burgundian hand-plunging techniques during fermentation. 14 months in French oak barriques produces additional aromatics, flavours and structure.
