Lightfoot & Sons Pinot Noir Shiraz 2017
Part of an experimental series of wines to push Lightfoot & Sons creativity and understanding as winemakers and grape growers. Inspired by the early wines of the Hunter Valley. This is their version of a classic but uncommon blend. Pinot Noir and Shiraz were vinified just for this project. Lightfoot & Sons Pinot Noir Shiraz 2017 is a 50/50 blend of whole bunch fermented Pinot Noir for complexity, spice and structure and nouveau style Shiraz for plump, juicy fruit and additional mid palate weight.
Myrtle Point Vineyard is in the Gippsland Lakes District. Located in far eastern Victoria, between the Great Dividing Range and Bass Straight, the Gippsland Lakes District enjoys a cool, semi-maritime climate. Soil structure of the Myrtle Point vineyard is Terra Rosa over limestone.
