Description:

One of our most popular pinot noir half bottles!

Amisfield Pinot Noir is Amisfield Vineyard's signature wine.

Winemaking:

Careful selection of clean fruit by the Amisfield Vineyard crew ensured they acquired the best quality fruit in this difficult vintage. The fruit was cold soaked for four days before fermentation began. Hand plunging and some pulse air during fermentation helped to extract the skin and seed tannins. After fermentation the team tasted the wines daily to assess the tannin development and to assist in deciding when it was optimum to press the wine off the skins.

Maturation:

Ten months in 35% new French tight grain oak barriques. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation occurred in the spring.

Style:

Bright, dark fruit focused, spicy, subtle oak, fine grained powdery tannins.

Tasting Notes:

A vibrant ruby colour. The nose is exceptionally aromatic and complex - fresh red cherries, baking spices and fine oak. The palate is taut, spicy yet silky and fruit driven with a delicate finish. Drink now or in four to five years.
