Balgownie Estate

2015 Black Label Pinot Noir

2015 Black Label Pinot Noir

This is a lovely delicate expression of Pinot Noir with classic characters of strawberry, cherry, spice, mushroom and a hint of toasty oak. Pinot Noir is a challenging variety to grow as it calls for a good vineyard site and attention to detail in both the vineyard and the winery.  Balgownie Estate’s Pinot Noir was planted in 2003 on south and south eastern facing slopes to avoid the most intense sun which allows the grapes to maintain natural acidity and flavours over a longer ripening period.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium red in colour, the nose displays an aroma of red cherry and strawberry fruits with spicy notes and a touch of tasty oak. There are also savoury notes of spice, and characuterie and a touch of forest floor character. The palate is elegant and finely balanced with terrific balance and concentration. There is an enticing persistence to this light to medium bodied expression of Pinot Noir.
Vineyard Notes
2015 was a wonderful warm year in the Yarra Valley resulting in a challenge to keep yields in the vineyard to a minimum in order to maintain the quality of fruit. Careful attention to the vines through the summer months produced a small crop of well ripened berries with lovely classic Pinot Noir character.
Winemaker Notes
The Pinot Noir was hand harvested which allowed us to protect fruit integrity and maintain the required quality. It was destemmed into small vats where it was hand plunged to gently extract flavours and the tannins. The wine was aged on lees for nine months to build mid-palate texture and complexity using a combination of old (90%) and new (10%) French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Cold and hot smoked Tasmanian salmon
