WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Tasmania is the new mecca for cool climate winemaking.
 
VINEYARD IS MAINTAINED USING ORGANIC PRINCIPLES

Tasmania has always been important to Handpicked as one of the world’s great Pinot Noir regions; our Tasmania Pinot Noir has always been a central part of our regional Pinot Noir range. It made sense to expand from there and have our own vineyards, in keeping with our focus on great vineyard sites and the way that impacts on special wines.” Pete Dillon.

A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“We were aiming for a wine with the power of past vintages and a touch more charm. I reckon we hit the bullseye: gorgeous perfume, big fruit and serious tannin.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 13 - 18°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 10 to 15 years

TASTING NOTES

Gorgeous aromas of ripe cherries and rose petals. The palate sings with black cherries and berries; superfine, mouthcoating tannin and perfectly balanced oak.

SEASON

It was a warm and dry season throughout Tasmania and the harvest began early, with some fruit for sparkling coming off in February. Pinot Noir was picked in our Tamar Valley vineyards beginning mid-March. Yields varied, but quality was excellent throughout our vineyards.

WINEMAKING

As always, timing of picking was critical and our team got it right again – pristine fruit of precisely balanced flavour and freshness reached the winery in perfect condition.


5 things you need to know:

- Hand picked fruit - Wild and inoculated ferment
- Cold soak before ferment to maximise colour and flavours
- Fermented in small batches in open fermenters with hand plunging (gentle, labour-intensive, small batch)
- Matured for 10 months in Burgundian oak – 30% new, mix of barriques (225L) and puncheons (500L)
- 10% whole-bunch - small ferment batches of whole bunches introduce different flavours and texture
