Manjimup, Western Australia
Small batch pinot noir made on the south coast of WA.
Lonely Shore is a small batch wine label with a vineyard focus. Inspired by pinot noir producers all over the world, we hope to capture the unique expression of our corner of Western Australia and bring it to your table.
DeiTos vineyard is located on an elevated clearing in the Middlesex subregion 6km south east of the town of Manjimup on the family property of Fabio & Katrina Deitos. Established in 1996, the vineyard is planted east west and is dry farmed on a complex mix of karri and jarrah loams over deep gravels.
Made on the south coast
Lonely Shore is based in Denmark, Western Australia. We make around 200 cases of Pinot Noir every year, released each spring. As pinot lovers, we are inspired by the site, and the vineyard is our main focus. Our aim is to capture the intricacies of the fruit with minimal interference.
Fruit is handpicked, cold soaked and fermented in two parcels. When stems are ripe a whole bunch component is fermented separately which contributes 10%-20% to the final blend. It is then basket pressed and gravity movement is used as much as possible. It spends 8 months in oak (10% new) and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
