Amisfield

Estate Pinot Noir / 2021 / 750mL

Tasting Note

One of our more popular pinot noir - each year this wine seems to get better - outsanding value for the money!

Youthful aromatic expressions of sweet red cherries, mulberries and plums lead to a complex and lingering palate.

Black doris plums with lifted aromatics derived from the concentrated smaller berries.

Tight and precise on the palate with terroir expressive minerality, plush red fruits and intriguing dry herbal notes.

The oak is light and subtle to complement the fine grained tannins and supple acidity.

Amisfield Estate Pinot Noir wine has interesting layers of expression which will provide delight with contemplation.

Delicious!

Vintage Notes:

An unsettled growing season with rain during December flowering and blasts of wintery conditions through January and February.

The cool season continued during picking which assisted in slowing sugar ripening and allowed for harvest based on optimal flavour and acid balance.

Smaller than usual bunches and berries produced great flavour concentration, with moderate alcohol and balanced acidity.

Winemaking:

Hand-harvested fruit was coldsoaked for four to five days before natural fermentation began.

Gentle, selective timing of hand-plunging and some pulse air during fermentation helped to extract the delicate skin and seed tannins.

Approximately 10% whole-bunch clusters were included in some of the ferments.

After fermentation, wines were left on their skins for an extended time and were tasted daily to assess the tannin development prior to being transferred to barrel.

Maturation was 15 months in 20% tight-grain French oak.

Brix 23.1 - 24.7

pH 3.30-3.55

Titratable Acidity 6.50 - 9.00 g/L

Alcohol 14%
