Chamonix Feldspar Pinot Noir
PRODUCER: Chamonix offers visitors a seamless blend of unspoiled nature, welcoming hospitality, exquisite facilities and a host of culinary and viticultural delights, set amongst a working wine farm and water bottling plant with a history stretching back nearly 350 years.
WINEMAKING: 10% whole bunch are hand-selected on sorting tables and fermented in stainless steel vats (maceration carbonique) at 22-28o C for 10 days on the skins. The rest is destemmed and fermented in open oak vats for 14 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 13.5% alcohol is matured for 16 months in 228ℓ s French oak barrels with 30% new wood.
TASTING NOTES: A complex, fresh bouquet with scents of wild berries, spice, sour cherry and violet. On the palate the wine shows medium body with red-fruit flavours balanced by soft, elegant tannin. Long, refreshing finish.
