MWC Pinot Noir 2014

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
Alcohol: 14%

The aroma is enticing with intense plum, cherry and strawberry fruit with a hint of spicy oak. The fresh fruit momentum continues on the palate with vibrant plum and dark stone fruits finishing with some firm acid, beautiful tannins and integrated oak.

Viticulturist Notes

The growing season in 2014 presented some challenges including frost in late 2013 and extreme heat in early 2014. Once harvesting began in late January we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fruit and the resulting wines. Yields were down but quality was up this year. Whites have good varietal character, with great flavour, whilst the reds have beautiful colour and flavour intensity.

Wine Harvest Notes

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were picked and crushed during the cool of night to retain their varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction.

Food Recommendations:

Great match with roast duck and other game meats, medium intensity dishes like porcini mushroom risotto or soft cheese.
