2012 IV-MV6 Pinot Noir

2012 IV-MV6 Pinot Noir

Beechworth, VIC

Colour is medium density with lovely purple hues evident. Fragrant Pinot Noir aromas of red cherry with Campari notes. Oak does not play a big part in this wine. Soft entry on the palate with forest/dried fruit richness and excellent fruit tannins. Will benefit from bottle age or enjoy in its youth.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Processing involved cold soak of the must for a few days and including approximately 10% whole bunches in the ferment. No post ferment maceration was under taken. Oak maturation was in predominantly used French oak barriques and bottled at the 12 month mark. The Pinot Noir is solely from clone MV6.
Winemaker Comments
The 2002 Pinot Noir grapes were the first off the new Indigo Vineyard at Beechworth and a stunning vintage to debut. As there are three clones planted over different sites there is the opportunity to process as a number of different parcels. Hence we have the varietal bottling as well as a Single Vineyard wine. Beechworth had a perfect spring and ripening period over summer led to very high expectations. Winemaker Simon Steele quickly recognized the potential of the early fruit and with two other vintage staff packed their swag and headed to Beechworth. The rain at the end of February delayed the late ripening red harvest but everything came in good order.
Food Pairing
Duck, quail and steak tartare.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
