Peregrine 2007 Pinot Noir
- 80% Cromwell Basin and 20% Gibbston
- 3-5 years
- Duck, salmon, venison and beef fillet
TASTING NOTE:The fruit for this wine came from the Cromwell basin (80%) and the Gibbston (20%). The 2007 vintage produced a true Indian summer which provided the perfect conditions for our Pinot Noir coupled with low average yields of 4.5 tonne per hectare.
The fruit was hand harvested and destemmed to open top fermenters. The fruit was given a 2-6 day cold maceration prior to warm fermentation. The fermented fruit then had an extended post fermentation maceration to help with tannin extraction and integration. The average time on skins was approximately three weeks.
The resulting wine was pressed to French oak barrels (35% new) where it spent 10 months. The wine was racked from barrel and lightly filtered before being bottled.
The 2007 Peregrine Pinot Noir has great depth of colour. The nose has an intense perfume of mocha, candy, dark fruits along with charry oak. The palate is rich and dense with plums, spice and silky tannin. The finish is enticing and long.
