Trofeo Estate Amphora Pinot Noir


Dromana, VIC- 2018

Descriptors: Smashed Strawberry, Coriander Seed, Ocean Breeze


Amphorae have been used in winemaking basically from the beginning , however wines aged in these clay vessels are becoming very on trend now. Amphorae are historically linked to the wines of Northern Italy, Georgia and Hungary but there is a resurgence happening in many places around the world. This Amphora Pinot Noir has been aged exclusively in Florentine Terracotta Amphora. Aging in the Amphora allows the wine to develop and age without the influence of any oak character, a true expression of the fruit from the estate.
