- Tasting Notes
The 2021 growing season was a moderate cool winter, a wet spring, with rains starting in early October and carrying through until harvest. 100% pinot noir, clones 114, 115 and 777. Made from the juice removed after crushing, forming about 10% of the total wine made from the Pinot. Using native yeast fermentation was maintained around 20degrees centigrade, juice was oxidatively handled to remove brown pigments before fermentation. A small amount of pinot noir red wine was added after fermentation to achieve the colour and flavour desired.
"The wine is a beautiful dusty pink colour (Argyle Diamond) the wine has a bright intense fruit colour, orange peel and raspberry. It has a clean tight palate, obvious strength fruit flavours. Flavour continues on and forms great bright fresh drinking." PS
