2019 Pinot Noir
The 2019 Vintage
Similar to the 2017 vintage, 2019 commenced significantly later than the long-term norm and extended through to the end of April. Mild, cooler weather during late 2018 was beneficial for vine growth and an atypical heavy rain event in mid-January bought a recharge to the soil water just when needed. This was followed by fine, mild weather to get the vintage underway until mid-vintage when there were some minor rain events and humidity. Luckily, this was followed by beautiful weather until the end of April.
Our Pinot Noir was hand harvested on the 22nd of March 2019. In summary, 2019 was a comparatively late and long season and the region has achieved a high-quality harvest.
• Floral aromas with red cherry, raspberry and vanilla strawberry fudge
• Leading to a spiced black cherry
• Concentrated palate of raspberry cherry kirsch
• Spicy, savoury and a silky & fine finish
