Bec Hardy Pinot Noir 2024

Regular price $25.00

Region: Adelaide

Story: Vibrant and fresh, this wine is one of the best value Pinot Noirs going around - it's the perfect red wine for all seasons!

Vineyard:  This wine is a single vineyard Pinot Noir from the Osmond's 'Clay Creek' block located in a beautiful pocket just outside McLaren Flat.  The vines are 50 years old, a rarity for Pinot Noir in McLaren Vale.  The long established vines make for wonderfully balanced and high quality grapes.

Soils: The soils in this vineyard are deep aluvial clays from the Holocene era (11,700 years old). This area would have been a flood plain that was first planted by settlers so the soils retained water and the vines grew well, even before irrigation. 

Harvest date: 14 February 2024

Winemaking: After the short truck ride from the vineyard to the winery, the grapes were destemmed and chilled to 12˚ C  at the crusher before a 24hr cold soak pre-fermentation. Cool ferment temperature allowed for bright fresh fruit flavour retention. Gentle treatment through cool ferment involved minimal 'handling' of the fruit, with oxygen injection into the ferment 3 times daily to keep the 'cap' wet and extract flavour, colour, and tannins from the skins. After 8 days ferment on skins, the wine was pressed to seasoned oak for 3 months before early bottling.  

Nose: Lifted bright red berry fruits with elegant spicy notes. 

Palate: Medium bodied palate shows generous cherry fruits with earthy spice. Soft oak tannins complement the fruit structure and give length to the finish. An approachable wine showing great generosity of varietal fruit flavour. 

Cellaring: Drink now to 2029

Alc: 13.5% TA: 5.7g/L
pH: 3.56 RS: 0.3g/L
