2014 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir

2014 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir

Beechworth, VIC

The 2014 Beechworth Pinot Noir’s have a terrific, vibrant colour. The richer fruit spectrum means a bit more new oak for this wine. Quite fragrant with more dark cherry and undergrowth notes that make Pinot so interesting. Smokey char characters from the oak but this will integrate with further bottle age. A serious young Pinot Noir.

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
Brokenwood has been producing Pinot Noir from the Indigo Vineyard since 2002. 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. An excellent 2013 vintage and then a mild winter and early 2013 spring had everyone looking forward to 2014. The frost event of October 18 was so widespread that vineyards from central Victoria right through to Cowra and Orange in the NSW Hilltops were affected. The Indigo Vineyard lost quite a lot of fruit and then to really test the vineyard crew, temperatures in late December hit 41C, and 44C in mid-January. Some rain, nearly 50mm in late January did cool things down.
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.
