Carrick Excelsior Pinot Noir

Bannockburn

An intense nose showing floral aromatics, black cherries, plum and a touch of spice from the barrels providing a beautifully integrated wine. The front palate is layered with dark fruits, oriental spice and complex savoury flavours which support the fine grained tannins. The intensity of the front palate cascades into a lingering seamless finish.
This is an intensely rich wine that will cellar until at least 2025.

Winemaking and Viticulture

The outstanding 2013 vintage produced quality grapes which are a
prerequisite for this single block wine and the wine shows those
characters of structure, texture and fruit quality that is its hallmark.

All fruit was hand harvested and fermented with some whole bunch content. Following fermentation the wine was aged in a combination of new ( 30%) and older french oak for around 18 months. Bottled with minimal filtration the wine will age for many years.
