Balgownie Estate

2015 Balgownie Estate Pinot Noir

2015 Balgownie Estate Pinot Noir

Our Yarra Valley Vineyard was specially planted on south and south-eastern facing slopes with three premium quality clones (114, 115 and MV6), to produce exceptional Pinot Noir. We are delighted that the vineyard has reached maturity to enable us to produce an Estate Pinot Noir, with depth, elegance, beautiful flavours and lovely structure.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
“A surprising pinot noir in as much as there’s plenty of heft behind the wine but it also manages refreshment factor and a feel of elegance. It’s silky, full in cherry and choc-berry character, set on fine tannins and impressively long. Well done here.” Mike Bennie in "Wine Business Monthly"
Vineyard Notes
Mild and dry conditions prevailed for much of the 2015 growing season. The Estate Pinot Noir was selected from the best rows of vines in our Melba vineyard with the yields were kept to a very low level to encourage intensity of flavour. The grapes were hand harvested in late February and early March at perfect balance and ripeness
Winemaker Notes
After cold soaking for two days the fruit was fermented in open vats with regular hand plunging to gently extract colour, flavours and tannins. After pressing, the wine was then aged in French oak barrels for nine months.
Food Pairing Notes
Pan fried duck breast with plum puree and Szechuan sauce
