2018 Pinot Noir

2018 Pinot Noir

Beechworth, VIC

Campari-like fruit notes tending into dark plum – very attractive aromas. A slightly deeper colour from the 2018 vintage. The palate starts out bolder with dark red fruits and sweet edges from the French oak used. Lovely ripe tannins and a good acid backbone carries the flavours right to the finish. The lingering after taste makes for a very enjoyable Pinot Noir.

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 under taken. Oak maturation was predominantly in used French oak barriques and bottled at the 12-month mark.
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 opportunity to process as a number of different parcels; hence we have the Varietal wines as well as Single Vineyard wines. Sufficient winter rainfall in 2017 saw the vines off to a good bud burst and then 55mm of rain in early December was very welcome. Particularly as temperatures had started to climb with highs of 34C and then 35C in December. January 2018 saw a top temperature of 40.7C tempered with a much needed 70mm of rain towards the end of January. Harvest progressed under clear blue skies.
Food Pairing
Duck and Pinot is a classic combination, also try with quail and steak tartare.
Drink
Drinking well now however will improve with further bottle age.
