2018 Blairpatrick Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

Regular price $80.00

Tasting Notes

Our Blairpatrick vineyard produces Pinot Noir of incredible character. A wine that is poised and structured, offering you layers of red and dark cherry, hints of chocolate and liquorice, all elegantly rounded out by an intense spice and mineral complexity. Overall, a generous and dense palate which finishes with a firm, yet silky tannin structure and beautifully balanced acidity. A wine that will age gracefully well into the future.

94-95 Points | "This has gorgeous texture – you almost want to sink into it: there’s plumpness here but it offers precision too – maybe that’s the small portion of whole bunch providing an undertow. And my, what concentration it has. There’s a lot to like here aromatically too: damson skin, violet flavours and savoury nuances combine with subtle oak-derived mixed spice, and even a cumin note. The tannins are resolved although perhaps there is a little room for refinement of texture if I’m being super picky, which i am when I’m handing out such superb scores. Delightful in its youth, I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t happily cellar this for 10-12 years or more although I don’t think it’d last that long in my cellar. Sadly only 103 cases were made" - Rebecca Gibb MW

Winemaker's Notes

A mix of wild and innoculated ferments, however, all ferments were started wild. 10% of this wine is whole-bunch, and maturation for 14 months in barrel with 25% being 100% New French Oak.
