Tasting Notes

colour

Light crimson colours with ruby hues.

aroma & palate

This bright ruby, elegantly structured wine offers a crunchy array of red fruits, with notes of pomegranate, cranberry, raspberry and rosehip . Subtle oak spice weaves throughout, with lingering hints of bay and fresh thyme yielding a wine with poise and precision.

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 Glengarry Vineyard was hand-picked and fermented in 2T open top fermenters, with 15% whole bunch inclusion. Gently hand plunged, with gentle pressing to tank post MLF, followed by 10 months maturation in large format French oak (25% new) before selective barrel blending and bottling with minimal additions.

Reviews

Tyson Stelzer, Wine Business Magazine 2024

Lowestoft captures a very different mood in Glengarry north west of Launceston than it does in its home vineyard in the Derwent Valley, expressing the cool and humid 2022 vintage with a vibrant tangy and elegant mood of morello cherries, wild strawberries and rose petal lift. Driven by cool acidity, marrying with beautifully fine tannins to define a streamlined and perfectly polished fuselage of long-distance endurance of Burgundian proportions.
