Min. Quantity: 3
The Protégé Pinot Noir is a classic Tasmanian Pinot Noir. Fresh and fruity, it is bursting with cherry and strawberry fruits with a silky palate. This fresh, lively and aromatic Pinot shows lovely lifted strawberry and spice characters on the nose. These aromatics carry through to the palate which has fine, soft tannin, lovely bright fruit and juicy acidity. This is a gorgeously light Tasmanian Pinot Noir which makes for perfect drinking at any time.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"Some solid pinosity here at a pretty sharp price point. Bright ruby red in the glass with aromas of red cherry and raspberries with hints of exotic spice, herbs, purple flowers, leaf litter and earth. Spacious, fruit pure and spicy there's plenty of zip to the acid profile and a finish that is plush with redcurrants and raspberries." 93 points (On the 2023 vintage.)
Halliday Wine Companion - September 2023 (DB)
This Pinot was made to be a lighter more fruit driven style of Pinot with some underlying spicy complexity. To achieve this, the fruit was picked at moderate sugar levels when the fruit was displaying lovely fresh strawberry and cherry characters. The fruit was then de-stemmed and fermented on skins for 10 days. Specific yeasts which are known to enhance fruit aromatics were used to conduct the ferment. Following fermentation, the wine was matured in tank prior to being bottled.
Cellar for up to 10 years from release.
