Barringwood Estate Pinot Noir 2022
Barringwood Vineyard has one of the longest growing seasons in Tasmania giving their wines delicacy and elegance along with a classic backbone of cool climate acidity. Since their first vintage in 1998, Barringwood’s multi award winning single vineyard wines have consistently been among Tasmania’s best.
Grapes were destemmed to open top fermenter and cold soaked for 3 days prior to yeast inoculation. On completion of primary fermentation wine was air bag pressed to tank to undergo malolactic fermentation then racked to barriques and aged in barrel for 6 months, including 15% new oak.
The nose is full of bright juicy strawberries & cherries, and hints of rhubarb give way to mild spices and subdued savoury notes. The palate has good body with up front fruit characters backed up with distinctive savoury notes and a hint of spice.
