Damsteep Pinot Noir 2014
Red ruby hue. Aromas of forest fruits, blackberry, white rock, vanilla and liquorice. The palate is initially silken, with a velvet flow of delicate red cherry, raspberry, tilled dark earth and iron flavours. Emerging savoury tannin with a mineral tension that builds through the palate. A lingering and fresh after taste.
Yeast for fermentation was propagated from a vineyard starter, and then spent 12 months maturing in barrel. It was racked to stainless steel tank where the wine settled for 5 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.
The early and mid-season warmth is captured in the wines from the harvest with delicate and ripe fruit complemented by fresh and lingering minerality and lower than previously possible alcohol.
