Bannockburn Pinot Noir
Min. Quantity: 3
The Bannockburn Vineyards Pinot Noir is certainly an impressive Pinot. With its loaded mix of red and black fruits, tobacco spices and just enough aromatic whole-bunch notes, this is a spicy, supple and long Pinot of true weight. It finishes with ripe and velvety, yet persistent, with integrated tannins. Delicious with roast duck legs or mushroom risotto.
The Pinot Noir was drawn from a range of blocks (planted in 1976, 1997 and 2007), all on soils of volcanic loam and dark clay over a limestone base, and with a wide variety of clones (mainly MV6 with a smattering of the 'Dijon' or 'Bernard' clones 114, 115 and 777). All the fruit was destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeast, with just 20% whole bunches and 20% carbonic maceration. Élevage played out for 10 months, primarily in Tronçais hogsheads (25% new).
About Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is one of the world's most loved, light bodied red wines. Pinot Noir can be made into a variety wine styles, from light and fruity styles featuring cherry and strawberry notes to more complex, gamey and earthy styles. Pinot Noir is usually higher in acid and lower in tannin, making it an ideal pairing for lighter, fattier foods duck, cheese and lamb. Often, the region defines the style.
