Surprisingly affordable, quality Bannockburn Pinot Noir

Bannock Brae is a small husband and wife operation, creating some excellent Pinot Noir in the celebrated Bannockburn sub-region. Goldfields is their more approachable style, but is still full of the classic brooding dark fruit and spice typical of Bannockburn. For great value Otago Pinot, it is hard to beat. 

The color of this wine is dark, the nose is undeniably fragrant and elegant with a bouquet of ripe red and black cherries, red licorice, sweet thyme, and violets. The palate expresses cherries, red meat, autumn spices, a lingering natural acidity and a pleasing vanilla finish, reaping the benefits of the 15% new oak used. 

Winemaking Notes:

The grapes were hand-harvested mid to late April. They were crushed and destemmed into 4-Tonne stainless fermenters. They were ‘cold soaked’ for about a week, then inoculated and allowed to ferment reaching a peak temperature of 31degC. After cooling, the wine was racked into French oak barrels and left until the following March undergoing a malolactic fermentation during winter. The wine was finally cold stabilised and gently fined, but not filtered, ready for bottling. The winemaker is Jen Parr.
