2009 Urlar Pinot Noir
The grapes were handpicked according to flavour and skin ripeness. Each clone was fermented separately in traditional oak cuves after undergoing a period of cold soak to enhance colour extraction. Our winemaking style encourages texture, complexity and balance. Once these elements are in unison the wine is pressed off band matured in 25% new French oak barriques. The wine is fined using natural products.
2009 vintage delivers an enticing nose of ripe red fruits and dark chocolate which combine with flavours of sweet dark plums intermingled with savoury notes and exotic spices. This wine is elegant and refined with a seamless rich texture through the palate. Beautifully suited to a rack of lamb or gamey dishes such as venison or duck - Urlar Vineyard
