2020 K1 Pinot Noir
Story: 5 clones of Pinot Noir are grown on the K1 vineyard, these are processed separately then stored in oak. As the season affects each clone differently, keeping them separte allows only the best barrels to be selected for this wine.
Vintage: The 2020 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The K1 Pinot Noir exhibits attractive aromas of strawberries and cherries with a hint of spice.
Palate: The palate is bright with masses of red berries and elegant, fine-grained tannins, followed by a lingering finish.
Food Pairings: Try this wine with a wild duck dish or enjoy a glass or two with family and friends.
Cellaring: Drink now or to 2028
