Tasting Notes

colour

Light crimson colours with ruby hues.

aroma

Pure floral perfume with subtle bergamot tea lifting above bright cherry, damson plum and strawberry fruit tones.

palate

Layers of subtle spice escort a dense fruit core, with supple, whole bunch tannin manifesting an ethereal wine of purity and focus.

cellaring

Will reward careful cellaring of seven to ten years.

Technical

vintage

Constant spring winds during budburst caused low vine yields. The region experienced cooler than average temperatures over the growing season causing a longer ripening period with delayed harvest dates. The driest vintage to date producing extremely high-quality fruit.

winemaking

Superb Pinot Noir from the Jacoben Vineyard situated in the Lower Derwent Valley was hand-picked and fermented in 1T open-top fermenters, with up to 25% whole bunch inclusion. Gently hand plunged as required throughout fermentation, with gentle pressing to tank post-MLF. 10 months maturation in large format French oak (25% new) before selective barrel blending and bottling with minimal additions.

Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion 2023

From the Lower Derwent Valley; hand picked; up to 25% whole bunches; gentle hand plunging and occasional pumpovers. Matured 10 months in 25% new, large-format French oak. Crafted to an almost identical recipe to Lowestoft's estate pinot, this vineyard delivers a more linear, strict and structured take on the Lower Derwent. Well-focused black and red berry cherry/berry fruits are confidently supported by fine-grained tannins that promise great things in a decade.
