Terre à Terre Summertown Vineyard Reserve – Pinot Noir – 2017

2017 was a warm, yet late, vintage and the finicky Pinot Noir required extra management to see it through a growing season. The extra care didn’t stop in the vintage, with additional work from the winemakers hand.

Soft and succulent, red berry fruit awash across the nose. A slight sapid hint alludes to the inclusion of a small portion (15%) of whole bunch in the fermentation.

The palate a joyous unison of savoury, sweet, with textural elements – tannin and width. Seeing four weeks on skins for additional tannin extraction.
Latterly an element of blackcurrant peeks through, a sweet accent to a harmonious wine.
