|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 12%|
|Colour:||This pinot noir is crimson red with hints of purple.|
|Aroma:||Strong aromas of raspberry and blueberry dominate against a background layer of cinnamon and some savoury/meaty characters that will develop over time.|
|Palate:||Mouth-filling flavours of red berries are balanced by a good concentration of soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to a long and persistent finish.|
|Peak Drinking:||The wine is drinking well now and with careful cellaring will develop more complex and savoury characters over time in bottle. Cellar 8-10 years.|
Recommended food pairings: This flavoursome pinot noir makes a versatile accompaniment to a great variety of foods. It would be delightful with roasted duck breast, a light red wine jus and steamed greens. It is also fantastic with Comte cheese and seeded crackers.
Winemaking notes: The majority of this wine was destemmed into small open top stainless steel fermenters. Here they generally cold soak on skins for 5-7 days, before natural yeast start fermentation. Ferments are run up to 30 degrees and pump overs carried out up to four times per day. Approximately 10% of the ferments were completed with whole bunches. The skins are separated using a French basket press, and after 48 hours settling they are run to French oak barriques for maturation. 16% of the wine was run to barrel before the fermentation was finished allowing for a savoury complex barrel ferment. In Spring the barrels warm up and go through Malolactic fermentation. After 11 months in barrel, each individual block is sampled and only the best are identified, blending is then undertaken in the winery, and the three clones chosen in 2020 were D4V2, MV6 and 115. Vegan-friendly.
