Bannockburn Pinot Noir / 2015 / 750mL

Category: Wine
Sub-Category: Red wine

A moderately warm season punctuated by timely rain produced a more elegant style of Pinot Noir in 2015: lifted red fruits and savoury forest floor on the nose, bright acid and fine tannin on the palate.

Immediately enjoyable and versatile with regard to food pairings, this wine will reward medium term ageing in cellar.

Winemaking:

Batches of Pinot Noir from Bannockburn's different blocks were fermented with indigenous yeast, 40% whole bunch.

Élevage for 12 months in primarily Troncais and Bertranges hogsheads (30% new), then racked and returned to older barriques.

Bottled May 2016
