The Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir is drinking well now and will develop more complex and savoury characters with some more time in the bottle. It could be cellared for another four to eight years.

Description

Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 13.5%
Colour: This pinot noir is deep crimson red with hints of purple.
Aroma: A rich and complex nose with strong aromas of ripe raspberry and strawberry dominating against a background layer of spicy oak and some savoury/meaty characters that should develop with time in the bottle.
Palate: It has mouth-filling flavours of ripe raspberry and strawberry. The fruit flavours are balanced by a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to the finish which is long and persistent with lingering ripe fruit.
Peak Drinking: Until 2026

Recommended food pairings: This full and flavoursome pinot noir makes a versatile accompaniment to a great variety of foods. It would be delightful with an olive crusted lamb cutlet served on a tomato and chickpea salad. Or for something different try the Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir with a roasted squab that has a preserved lemon and thyme stuffing.

Growing Conditions: A blend of several clones was used as we have aimed for an elegant and complex expression of our terroir that will reward cellaring and suit fine dining.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: After crushing the must was pumped into open stainless steel fermenters with some batches allowed to undergo pre-ferment maceration and soak on skins for up to 5 days. Fermentation on skins for approximately 10 days with ferment temperatures allowed to run at temperatures of up to 30°C. During this time the cap was plunged twice daily. All batches were pressed using a hydraulic basket press and then pumped into French oak barriques. Approximately 25% of the wine was matured in new oak with the balance aged in a mixture of two to three year old barrels. Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir is typically aged for 10-12 months prior to bottling. The wine finished with and Alcohol of 13.5%, a TA of 6.1 g/l and pH of 3.43.
