2020 Pinot Noir

2020 Pinot Noir

Tamar Valley, East Coast & Jordan Valley TAS 

Red berry and bramble fruit notes with a slight Campari edge – very attractive aromas. A much brighter colour from the 2019 vintage. The palate starts out with crunchy red fruits complimented by the whole bunch used in fermentation. Lovely ripe tannins with a fresh acid backbone to carry the flavours right to the finish. The lingering after taste makes for a very enjoyable Pinot Noir.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Retention of fruit character is always important. Processing involved cold soak of the must for a few days and included approximately 25% whole bunches in the ferment. No post ferment maceration was under taken. Oak maturation was in used French oak barriques and bottled at the 10-month mark.
Winemaker Comments
Brokenwood has been producing Pinot Noir from the Indigo Vineyard since 2002. Due to the impact of the bushfires that affected the East Coast of Australia in 2020, we were unable to pick any fruit from Beechworth. The state of Tasmania is widely recognised as one of Australia’s premium cool climate regions and we were able to secure Pinot Noir from a number of the state’s exciting sub-regions. Thankfully Tasmania was unaffected by smoke in 2020. Sufficient winter rainfall in 2019 saw the vines off to a great budburst. A long cool, growing season saw the vines in good health with the grapes being picked just before a late autumn deluge. 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.
