JC’s Own Lenswood Pinot Noir 2018

JC’s Own Lenswood Pinot Noir is a delicious, lighter-drinking and savoury style of wine. The fruit is taken from a single vineyard at high altitude in the Adelaide Hills.

According to JC himself: “Having spent a few harvests at high altitude in the USA’s Sierra Nevada foothills I was mostly after a vineyard that had a decent enough slope to drain the warm air and high enough to be able to pick when the sugars hadn’t bolted. After several days cruising the hills I came across a little pinot vineyard in the sub region of Lenswood. At 560m and sloping to the north east it is right next to a strawberry field – you wouldn’t see that on the hot flats of the Barossa!

Stalky tannins and herbal, savoury wines float my boat, so I picked this early, bunches and all into the fermenter and then plunged the ferment over several weeks. I’m not a big new oak kind of guy, but found a new french puncheon that was lightly toasted – it added a bit of freshness rather than charry nuttiness. After pressing I filled this up with a few older barriques and let it sit on lees for a year.

So it sounds pretty fancy – high altitude, single vineyard, 50% new oak – but simply I love drinking it and hope you will too.”
