Drumsara Pinot Noir 2013
The 2013 Pinot Noir is the perfect example of Drumsara Wines’ Terroir, expressing dark and wild fruits of the forest; cherry, plum and strawberry, with an underlying hint of spices. The palate abounds in deep fruits, supplemented by vanilla beans and cocoa. The fine-grained tannins and lively acidity give the wine great length and ageing potential.
The Autumn was dry and warm allowing the ripening fruit to develop good varietal flavors. The fruit at harvest was impeccably clean with good maturity.
Pinot Noir Clone 5 52%, B667 12%, B777 17%, 115 6%. Hand-picked. The whole bunches enter the de-stemmer / crusher that is adjusted to allow for 90% of the berries to be crushed to release the juice and the remaining 10% to remain whole.
