J & S Fielke Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir 2020
Jemma and Steve’s 2020 Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir was sourced from two sites. The majority from a very cool South facing site planted to D5V12, 777, 115 & 114 clones, the second site being a smaller, warmer North East facing vineyard planted to 114. Both sites are on the high side of Summertown, in the shadow of Mount Bonython. 2020 was extremely low yielding, leading to great fruit intensity, and the mild conditions meant neither water or acid were required. The fruit was picked in late March before a long, wild fermentation with 20% whole bunch. The wine was pressed to 25% new oak for 8 months before racking to bottle without fining or filtering.
