Carrick Magnetic Pinot Noir 2019 750ml

Named after a Kawarau River gold dredge, the Carrick Magnetic Pinot Noir is a single block, single variety and single clone wine. Unique and interesting it is only sold direct to customers through our cellar door and wine club. The clone is Abel, said to be a cutting smuggled into the country from a famed Burgundian estate and subsequently confiscated by one Malcolm Abel. Moonlighting as a winemaker in his spare time, Abel a customs officer saw the potential in the cutting and decided to propagate the clone. It is this unique chain of events which then ultimately lead us to plant the Abel clone on a small 0.34ha plot in 2008. 

The Magnetic is hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard, 100% Abel clone.  De-stemmed to tank, fermented wild using a combination of pump-overs and punch-downs to manage the cap. On skins for 22 days, pressed, settled and racked to 7 barrels (15% new) for 10 months.

"Very distinct wine – a single block, single variety; and then a single clone – Abel Pinot Noir. Unusual to find a wine so specific – from a tiny 0.34 hectare plot planted in 2008, that I saw next to the winery on Cairnmuir road when I visited in February 2019. A powerful wine; fleshy and sweet-fruited to the fore; with ripe boysenberry, black doris and mocha."  - Winefolio -
