On release this wine is a classic reflection of Drumsara’s Pinot Noir, showing dark and wild fruits of cherry, plum, blueberry and marama strawberry, with an underlying hint of spices – thyme, licorice and vanilla. The palate abounds in deep fruits, supplemented by vanilla beans and dark chocolate. The fine grained tannins and lively acidity give the wine length aging potential. Enjoy now – 2018.
The Autumn was dry and warm allowing the ripening fruit to develop
good varietal flavors. The fruit at harvest was impeccably clean with
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.
