Plunging of 2012 Pinot Noir ferments
Winemaking assistant Gavin Robertson hand-plunging Pinot Noir ferments during vintage 2012.
The image was captured at Granton Vineyard in southern Tasmania. The 25ha site is home to the wines of fifth-generation winemaker Steve Lubiana. The Lubiana family create cool climate, artisan wines from grape to glass in Australia's picturesque Derwent Valley. Sustainable biodynamic vineyard practices and a state of the art on-site winery ensure complex New World wines of excellence and distinction that merit comparison with those of the Old World.
