Folding Hill, Ballasalla Pinot Noir 2017
Folding Hill is a small family owned wine company that makes premium wines from fruit grown entirely on its own 11 acre, vineyard in Bendigo Central Otago. Originally planted entirely in Pinot Noir , which is now certified organic , subsequent plantings have included Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Virtually all viticulture is done by hand and yields are managed to provide optimally ripe fruit that allow our wines to fully express the beautiful site they come from.
We use traditional old world techniques and a ‘hands off’ approach of minimal intervention with all our wine making. Our pinot noirs are made with fully destemmed, but not crushed, fruit that is vinified in small open top fermenters and matured in French oak barriques.
Classic Bendigo, Central Otago flavours of both red and darker fruits, spice and balanced oak. Pair with duck, venison, salmon. Enough body to match a good steak!
