Rotherwood - Pinot Noir 2015
This is our first vintage of the pinot noir grapes. We are excited. In 2007 we planted four different clones MV6, 777, 114 and 115, all grafted on to 101-14 rootstock.
Our head consultant, leading wine judge Nick Bulleid MW, had this to say following his first tasting…
“the wine is aromatic, with ripe red fruits in the plum/cherry/strawberry spectrum. It’s relatively delicate…but is quite rich and plump on the mid palate… The tannins are fine and even, without green edges or bitterness… This will make a very good wine once it responds to barrel-maturation.”
The wine is now bottled and is already delicious, confirming Nick’s initial assessment.
