2022 HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
"Tassie pinot. It's something else. It has an intensity, power and so much flavour. And yet, rarely feels heavy or overwrought. This is so perfumed, with florals and autumnal fragrance. It's perfectly framed, highlighting cherry and raspberry accents, woodsy spices and more besides. Full bodied, with plush, textural tannins. It's complex but not complicated, and this the inaugural release. Nice one."

TASTING NOTES

The wine is beautifully perfumed and has pure cherry, rhubarb and an earthy depth with velvety texture and fine, silky tannin. It seduces you with its aroma and captivates you with its vibrant long-lived mouthfeel. Everything is in balance here, fruit, texture, tannin, acidity, and oak all joining together in an overwhelming Pinot experience.

SEASON

2019 was a warm season for most of the mainland. Fortunately, the Bass Strait helped to temper even the hottest days making for ideal growing conditions in the Tamar Valley. Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health. January and February were dry and fairly warm. Flavour accumulation progressed slowly allowing for plenty of time to pick at optimal ripeness in late March.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked and chilled overnight. Destemmed and fermented on skins for 10 days. Gentle hand plunging and a slow-paced fermentationadd to the subtilty of the wine. Pressed off and transferred to a mixture of seasoned and new premium French oak. The wine was matured for 11 months before blending.
