Pinot Noir 2019
An elegant expression of Tamar Valley Pinot Noir, displaying aromas of ripe dark cherry against a background of spicy and savoury characters.
A rich and complex wine with a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins that will reward cellaring.
|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 13%|
|Colour:||This pinot noir is deep purple with hints of crimson.|
|Aroma:||A rich and complex nose showing generous aromas of ripe dark cherry and red berry fruits dominating against a background layer of spice and savoury complexity.|
|Palate:||It has mouth-filling flavours of ripe raspberry and strawberry. The fruit flavours are balanced by a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to the finish which is long and persistent with lingering ripe fruit.|
|Peak Drinking:||Until 2027|
Recommended food pairings: This full and flavoursome pinot noir makes a versatile accompaniment to a great variety of foods. It would be delightful with an olive crusted lamb cutlet served on a tomato and chickpea salad. Or for something different try the Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir with a roasted squab that has a preserved lemon and thyme stuffing.
Growing Conditions: A blend of several clones was used as we have aimed for an elegant and complex expression of our terroir that will reward cellaring and suit fine dining.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking notes: After destemming the must was pumped into open stainless steel fermenters with some batches allowed to undergo pre-ferment maceration and soak on skins for up to 5 days. Fermentation on skins for approximately 10 days with ferment temperatures allowed to run at temperatures of up to 30°C. During this time the wine was pumped over twice daily.
