2021 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir

2021 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir

Beechworth, VIC

Medium colour with excellent purple hues. On release at 12 months of age aromas are still quite fruit driven with lifted charry oak. A serious young Pinot Noir with fragrant dark cherry, toasty oak, and wholebunch aromas. Soft entry to the palate, with dark fruit characters supported by ripe tannins. Oak is noticeable at this early stage but it adds plenty of complexity. A Pinot Noir that will age well 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 30% whole bunches in the ferment. No post ferment maceration was undertaken. Oak maturation was in French oak barriques and bottled at the 10 month mark. This wine is a blend of the 3 clones 114, 115 & MV6.
Winemaker Comments
The Beechworth vintage 2021 presented a number of challenges to the vineyard and winemaking team. The rainfall for the year 2020 was 1040mm and above the average of 957mm. Most of it fell in the growing season, hence a fair degree of disease pressure and not helped by another 160mm in January. In fact most of the 2021 harvest from the Indigo Vineyard was handpicked, so anything not up to scratch was left behind. Harvest progressed under clear blue skies.
Food Pairing
Enjoy with duck, quail or steak tartare.
Drink
This wine will mature further although enjoyable as a rich young Pinot Noir. Enjoy over the next decade.
