Chartham Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Wine Facts - Pinot Noir 2016

Usually consumed when young and fruity. Displays red fruit flavours such as strawberry, raspberry, cherry. Best are aged in oak. “This is an expressive, fruitful Pinot Noir carrying plenty of red fruit, cherry, raspberry, and well integrated oak notes. The palate is fresh, gentle and dry with a light dusting of ripe tannins, which give structure to the wine. The finish is delightful, giving a lingering, sensual red fruit finish. It is youthful yet age- worthy over the next 2 to 3 years".
Clive Barlow, Master of Wine

2016 was a good year. There were no frosts after March. Some high temperatures in spring, followed by hot summer days with a maximum of 34°C in July to coincide with flowering and fruit set. This warm sunshine continued into August and September giving excellent ripening conditions before harvest in late September.

100% Pinot Noir.
The word ‘Pinot’ comes from the pine-cone shape of the grape bunch. A grape with thin skins, light in colour, used as a blend or a single varietal.

Soil: chalky loam with flint on South facing slope
Pruned: February, using single guyot method
Harvested: hand-picked in late September
