Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose on the 2011 Pinto Noir is complex; classic aromas of black and red cherries, roasted beetroot, forest floor, and violets burst out of the glass. The palate is elegant, supple, and generous with refreshing acidity on the finish. This is classy Old World style Pinot Noir with cherries, fresh beetroot, forest floor, and well integrated French oak character. The wine shows great concentration with fine structure from the ripe tannins. The 2011 Road 13 Pint Noir is ready to be shared with friends around the table.
Vineyard Notes
We used early leaf removal in the fruit zone to help with the cooler summer. Yields were kept low, at 3 tons or less per acre, to help maturity and concentration. Extensive green harvest took place to ensure uniform crop maturity. To make this wine we worked with great growers that enjoy what they do and understand the challenges and rewards of Pinot Noir in the vineyard. Deficit irrigation was applied to limit the vigour of the vines and help to grow grapes that deliver concentrated flavours and aromas.
Winemaker Notes
The Grapes were picked at optimum maturity and chilled over night before processing. The grapes were destemmed using our very gentle (and slow…) de-stemmer and the fruit was delivered by gravity into our small fermenters. The grapes were cold soaked for 7-8 days prior to the fermentation with native yeasts. Fermentation happened at high temperatures (32-34 degrees) and the wine remained on the skins for 26-30 days. Free run wine was drained by gravity directly to the barrels and the skins were pressed using our gentle wooden basket press. The was was aged for 10 months in Burgundian French oak prior to bottling.
