Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2018 750ml
Beautifully balanced with earthy tones, complementing bright cherry notes
The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is an integral part of what we do and a wine that we feel represents the strong connection we have with our land. The fruit comes from a parcel of vines which are entirely grown on their own roots and are the oldest vines we have on the property, planted in 1994.
This is classic Central Otago Pinot Noir, with good structure, earthy tones alongside red fruit and great balance, with at least 1 year of bottle age before release.
The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is a blend of 4 different parcels and 3 different clones, from both the Cairnmuir Vineyard (10/5; Clone 5 and 777) and Arthur’s Vineyard (10/5, Clone 5 and Clone 13). All vines are planted on their own roots, organically certified and tended to by hand. Destemmed, then fermented using wild yeast, each parcel spends 9 months ageing in barrel, of which 20% are new French oak barrels. Each barrel is carefully selected, before blending and remains in tank over harvest, allowing it time to unify.
"Aromas of black cherries, blackberries interweave wild thyme, perfume and barrel spices. This is a powerful, dark-toned Pinot Noir with generous fruit and complexity. Match with lamb roast and beef pies over the next 5+ years." - Candice Chow -
