2011 PINOT NOIR

This wine has an intensely perfumed nose of blackberry with flavours of juicy red and black fruits and aniseed supported by a soft layered tannin structure.
Technical Analysis
Location: 45 degree south
Low cropping estate grown grapes were hand harvested in April 2011 from Aurum’s Te Wairere vineyard near Cromwell, Central Otago.
Climate: A season of hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of clean fruit still holding good acidity.
Vine Age: 8-13 year old vines on VSP trellis.
Winemaker’s comments: The grapes were de-stemmed, cold soaked for 5 days and fermented in open vats. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 18 months.
