Carrick Magnetic Pinot Noir 2021 750ml

Named after a Kawarau River gold dredge, the Carrick Magnetic Pinot Noir is a single block, single variety and single clone wine. The clone in question, Abel, was said to be derived from a cutting smuggled into the country from a famed Burgundian estate and subsequently confiscated by customs on arrival into the country. Moonlighting as a winemaker in his spare time, Malcolm Abel – a customs officer – saw the potential in the cutting and decided to propagate the clone. It is this unique chain of events which ultimately lead us to plant the Abel clone on a small 0.34 ha plot in 2008.

Hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard, 100% Abel clone. De-stemmed to tank, fermented wild using a combination of pump-overs and punchdowns to manage the cap. On skins for 28 days, pressed, settled and racked to 7 barrels - for 9 months, 15% new.

"The 2021 Magnetic, is plush and full-bodied with velvety tannins and notes of cigar, bacon, dark cherry and earthy notes. It's burly and weighty with plenty more to give with time. An impressive wine, with good balance and potential."   - Rosie Menzies, winemaker-
