Overview

Our aim with this rich and expressive pinot noir style is to bring all of the sensual delicate berry flavours and delights of pinot noir to a peak at an early stage of the wine’s life, while offering a lush round and fleshy textured full bodied palate. To achieve this, the grapes, once picked, are immediately de-stemmed and crushed before being fermented in a combination of Vinimatic, static and open vat ferments. The grape must is then inoculated and fermented at between 25-30°C for a period of 7 to 12 days before being pressed off into stainless steel vessels. The wine then completes full malolactic fermentation and is then bottled early under screw cap. This allows the wine to attain a style that is both intensely perfumed with distinctive soft velvety tannins and rich, fresh, vibrant fruit.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant pinot noir ruby red, with subtle purple hue and good colour density.

Aroma

Lifted aromas of dark cherries, raspberries, sweet cranberries, and fragrant rose petal perfume.

Palate

A wine made for enjoyment with a beautiful bright lift of sweet berry flavours which stylishly support the palate. Concentrated and long, with the characteristic hallmark of early drinking pinot noir. At first the taste is supple round and delicate, but soon bursts with richness and power as the delicious pinot noir flesh and flavours fill your mouth. A wine that captures your palate's attention. Sensual Tasmanian sweet summer berry fruits, velvety fine long textured mouth-feel, all finely balanced by satisfyingly integrated mocha/coffee like tannins with a long captivating finish.

Food Matching

This pinot noir is made for pure enjoyment and drinks superbly as a young aromatic wine; yet is versatile enough to match with a wide array of foods: Asian and Mediterranean dishes where there is a slight sweetness in the meat or sauce, eg. duck with plum sauce, rack of lamb, spatchcock barbecued quail, pan fried turkey breast, grilled salmon, barbecued Asian spiced octopus, game pie, rabbit dishes or pigeon casserole. A versatile wine where the food matching is endless.
