2015 Forest Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir

2015 Forest Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir

Orange, NSW

A pale but red hued Pinot Noir. Aromas show bright red cherry and Campari characters. The new oak was kept to a minimum but there is a sweet vanillin background. The palate is also in the red fruit spectrum and a perfect medium-bodied density. Ripe tannins and perfect fruit/oak balance gives a long finish to the wine. Best enjoyed over the medium term.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Retention of fruit character is always important. Processing involved cold soak of the must for a few days and included approximately 10% whole bunches in the ferment. No post ferment maceration was undertaken. Oak maturation was in predominantly used French oak barriques and bottled at the 10 month mark. This is clone MV6.
Winemaker Comments
The Orange district is widely recognized as one of Australia’s premium cool climate regions. Rob Crawford established the “Forest Edge” vineyard in 1988. Vintage 2015 is Brokenwood’s 16th year of handling fruit from Forest Edge. The 2015 vintage for the Orange region can only be described as excellent. On the back of 250mm of rain over winter and then a dry Spring/Summer the grape growing was disease free with perfect ripening. It is not often a region records rain free months but Orange did so with 3 months as no rain fell in September and December 2014 nor January 2015. It was very close to 4 months as October 2014 had a light shower for 1.5mm.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with duck, quail and steak tartare.
