Bests Great Western 2013 Old Clone Pinot Noir
A wine built for medium term cellaring that drinks well after 2 years, but will gain complexity after 5-8 years of cellaring and could be kept for up to 15. This wine would be a great match to a duck and mushroom risotto.
The vineyard set off to a rapid start with ideal conditions for budburst and a warm spring for fruit set. The summer was mainly warm and dry. There were a few hot spells, but adequate foliage ensured the vines remained in good health. The earlier than normal vintage period provided very good ripening and harvest conditions with clear days and cool nights.
