2019 Willow Creek Vineyard O'Leary Pinot Noir

2019 Willow Creek Vineyard O'Leary Pinot Noir

The exceptionally dry, warm growing season, then following summer and autumn during the ripening period meant the 2019 crop across all varieties was harvested early and with evident intensity of flavour and structure – a really exciting vintage across the whole region.

The hand harvested fruit was fermented in small, open fermenters – 100% as whole bunches – with minimal physical maceration of the cap. The total maceration time was around 23 days. The wine was racked in late winter 2019 and returned to older barrels for further maturation until winter 2020, when it was racked again and bottled.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Medium, bright red hue. Bouquet: Layered aromas of maraschino cherry, redcurrants and fresh earth. There is attractive complexity with spicy campari notes and subtle toast from the oak. Palate: Intense red fruits and spice flavours prevail, with a silky volume to the mid-palate complemented by a structured palate shaped by purposeful tannins.
