Nick Bulleid's Tasting Note

Background
The grapes for this wine were grown at 330 metres altitude on the border of the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. The 2013 vintage in the Vale was very early, following a warm, dry summer. The grapes for this wine were fermented in small open tanks, with 20 % whole bunches included to increase fragrance, flesh on the mid-palate and a rounder tannin profile. It as matured in French oak hogsheads, 25% new, for 10 months.

Colour
Light-medium garnet

Nose
Complex and developed, showing cedar, red plum and leather

Structure / Palate
Round and medium to full bodied. Complex red fruits, forest floor and cedary development. Finishes with a distinct tannin grip.

The wine has aged into a richly flavoured, soft red wine and speaks more now of savoury complexity from bottle-age than juicy young Pinot. It is now mature, but will maintain its character into 2019. Pinot noir is always beautiful with duck, but this has the weight to suit other meat dishes. It would also go well with tomato or meat-based pasta sauces.
