Carrick Pinot Noir 2014

100% Pinot Noir from Carrick's vineyards in the Bannockburn region of Central Otago. Certified organic.

Fermented in small open top fermenters, and typically has a 5 day pre-ferment cold soak, with punch downs throughout fermentation, then 5 to 7 days extended maceration. Fermentation occurs naturally and the wine is matured for 12 months in French oak, of which about 20% is new. Malolactic fermentation occurs in the spring; lots are then selected and blended before bottling without fining or filtration.

Winemaker's Comments

Fleshy with lush plum and dark cherry flavours and a touch of spicy oak. The palate has a silken texture with a long lingering finish. This vintage is reminiscent of the outstanding 2003, 2006 and 2010 vintages, and is anticipated to age exceptionally well.
