Tasting Notes

Colour: Ruby

Aroma: In classic youthful Pinot Noir One form the nose is dominated by dark concentrated red and black bramble fruits and supported by elegant wood char. As it evolves the nose shows complexities of jasmine, toasted pine nuts and caramel fudge.

Palate: The palate is as generous, lush and fruit laden as the nose suggests. The predominate characters are morello cherries, blackberries, raspberries and cream. Bright acidity underpins the round juicy palate resulting in a long refined and elegantly structured finish.

Closure: Diam

Technical Notes

Fruit for Pinot Noir One comes from our main north facing slope. The 114, 115 and 777 predominate. Fruit was handpicked at optimal ripeness with a low crop level of 1.7 tonne per acre. Bunches were destemmed prior to fermentation in open topped vats. The vast majority of ferments were whole-berry, allowing carbonic maceration to highlight bright fruit expression whilst imbuing rich, rounded textural feel. After fermentation the wine was transferred to barrel without extended maceration. Very tight grained French barriques were carefully selected for refined char and subtlety (30% new). After 14 months in the cellar, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
