2013 IV-MV6 Pinot Noir

2013 IV-MV6 Pinot Noir

Beechworth, VIC

Vibrant colour and with a bit of depth to it. Not as fragrant as the 2012 version, slightly riper and the 30% whole bunch sits well on both aroma and palate. Red fruit and very subtle oak. The riper tannins does give the palate lovely weight and length. At this stage the flavours centre on the fruit side but over, foresty/sweet earth flavours will develop.

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. 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
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
