Medium bodied, with persistent rich cherry/plum flavours & mild spicy oak

Rich ripe plum, berry and subtle forest floor aromas marry together for a smooth Pinot Noir

This is a fabulous food wine, for a twist on convention we recommend having it alongside a spicy Sichaun beef dish

Description

"Crisp, light, clean and refreshing varietal lift of Pinot Noir with aromas of cherry, plum and red apple skin. Dry, fruity and fine on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose, fine tannins and vibrant acidity. A layer of softer finer wood spice adds depth and length. Balanced and well-made. Drink now and through 2024" Cameron Douglas, Master Somilier, the Shout, Jun 2018

Rich ripe plum, berry and subtle forest floor aromas marry together for a smooth medium bodied Pinot Noir. The palate shows persistent rich cherry/plum flavours and mild spicy oak making an enjoyable and easy drinking wine.

Spring was dry to start the growing season and late frosts in early December threaten but didn’t impact and fruit set was great. Some rain during the growing season in January provided plenty of nutrients and juicy weight to the fruit. A hot and dry summer delivered a harvest as smooth as can be with continuous fruit supply keeping the winery busy. Overall we received slightly above average yields with optimum quality fruit.

Our vinification is aimed at retaining the maximum possible fruit aromas and flavours as seen in the vineyard. To do this we use protective anaerobic techniques with minimal handling. The grapes were harvested in the cool of the morning, then destemmed, gently crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks. We fermented at low temperatures with neutral yeast. After fermentation the wine is racked and cold stabilised before bottling
