2019 Willow Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir

2019 Willow Creek Vineyard 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 destemmed to small open fermenters and naturally-occurring yeast completed the fermentation, with gentle cap management over three weeks to balance the tannins. The wine was pressed off to French oak barrels, 20% of which were new, for maturation, with one racking in late winter then returned to barrel until bottling preparation in February 2020.

Tasting Notes
Colour: medium red-purple hue. Bouquet: Intense cherry and redcurrant aromas, framed by more savoury notes of dried herbs and toasty oak. Palate: Powerful fruit intensity in a rich but restrained palate, the tannins and savoury complexity keeping the balance long and satisfying.
