Lane’s End L’autre (The other ) Pinot Noir is our second label Pinot Noir.
This wine is 100% destemmed and then made similarly to our first label Pinot Noir (wild yeast ferment-open tank) and with a small whole bunch input. It is usually on skins for around 20 days.The wine is then matured for eight months in French oak barriques prior to bottling. No fining and minimal filtration.This is very much about the Pinot fruit and is made for immediate enjoyment but will cellar well.
Lashings of red and dark fruits, spice and earthy, meaty components melded together with French oak. A leads to a prolonged finish.Ready to drink now but will cellar well over the next 2-3 years.
