100% Pinot Noir from Carrick's certified organic "Le Chat" single vineyard in Bannockburn, Central Otago.
Fruit is transferred to small open top fermenters with typically a 5-7 day pre-ferment cold soak and minimal punch downs throughout fermentation, followed by 5-7 days extended maceration. All parcels undergo wild yeast ferments which encapsulate the fruit characters. Matured 11 months in French oak, approx 15% new.
A light bodied and finely structured Pinot Noir with dark fruits and spice on the nose. It has lovely flow and entry onto the palate with dark cherry, blackcurrants, and the unmistakable tannin structure that can only come from the Cairnmuir Terraces of Bannockburn where the Carrick winery and vineyard is situated.
