2013 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir

2013 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir

Beechworth, VIC

Medium colour with excellent purple hues. On release at 15 months of age aromas are still quite fruit driven plus lifted oak. A serious young Pinot Noir with fragrant dark cherry, toasty oak and forestry aromas. Soft entry to the palate, dark fruit characters supported by ripe tannins. oak is noticeable at this early stage but the char/vanillin add plenty of compexity.

CRU $288.75   SVC $272.25

Wine Profile
Vinification
Retention of fruit character is always important. Processing involved cold soak of the must for a few days and included approximately 20% 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. This is a blend of the 3 clones 114, 115 & 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. The response to our 2012 Pinots from Beechworth was very positive, so there was some nervousness in the lead up to vintage 2013. Thankfully excellent winter rain, 670mm and then a fine dry summer ticked all the boxes. The fruit was slightly riper than 2012.
Food Pairing
Duck, quail and steak tartare.
Drink
This wine will mature further although enjoyable as a rich young Pinot Noir. Enjoy over the next decade.
