Winemaking Notes

The Blue Pyrenees Exclusive Release Pinot Noir is an interesting regional version of the famous red wine of France. Pinot Noir is known as notoriously difficult to grow & at Blue Pyrenees Estate is used predominantly for rosé wines. However in years such as the 2015/2016 growing season, Pinot Noir can produce a quality red wine in the Pyrenees. Such a batch was identified in the vineyard, allowed to ripen to 13.5 beaume & then hand plunged in a two tonne open fermenter for 7 days before pressing & maturing in old French oak barriques for 18 months.
