The entry level Pinot Noir by one of Pemberton's grand old winemaking estates. As to the moniker, there really is a treehouse, it's the grand children's play area and it's set deep within the fabled forests of Salitage. A balanced and approachable young Pinot Noir of the finest provenance, offering excellent early drinking, highly compatible across a wide range of food styles.
John Horgan established Salitage after tours of duty at Robert Mondavi and Premier Cru Domaine de la Pousse D'or. Several clones of Pinot Noir are collated from choice Pemberton vineyards, each site is picked and separately handled. Parcels are treated to small batch, whole berry vinification in fermenters, employing twice daily pumpovers and rack returns. Fermentation temperatures peak at 30°C and last for up to a fortnight or more. Upon achieving dryness, batches are drained, pressed to tank and settled, followed by transfer to seasoned French oak barriques for completion of natural malolactic. The final wine is assembled in Spring and treated to a light filtration before bottling.
TASTING NOTES
Medium intensity, plum red colour. Aromatics of wild strawberry, red cherry, hints of white pepper and wood spice. Cherry flavours with a fleshy and textured palate lead to a soft balanced finish. The wine shows pleasing complexity, length of flavour with lovely moderated oak tannins. Due to the minimal handing during vinification, a small deposit is expected, the winemakers recommend decanting prior to serving.
