Pipeclay Terrace Pinot Noir 2009
Our Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs are made in limited quantities and are not produced every year. This vintage was distinctive showing classic Pipeclay Stella cherry and blackberry with a slight spice kick and lovely light violet florals. The wine displays a strong dark berry entry, which moves into a rich and sensuous mid-palate. The wine finishes strongly with a combination of fruit and finely grained structural tannin. 2009 was a vintage with excellent flavour definition – intense cool varietal flavours with excellent concentration and typically high acidity providing lovely focus on the finish.
Mt Difficulty Pipeclay Terrace Pinot Noir will improve for 10-15 years given optimal cellaring conditions.
