2007 Judd Pinot Noir

From our Judd Vineyard. Elegant and sumptuous with characteristic earthy, spicy, red fruit/berries, dusty and savoury; it is a buxom wine, round and intense, powerful yet delicate.

Add To Carton

"This Judd Vineyard pinot noir by Ten Minutes by Tractor was cropped at 475kg per acre. No wonder it’s expensive. Though the quality is spot on. Complexity, texture, length and personality. Lovely ropes of tannin too. Dark cherries, cedarwood, sap and smoked meats. Just to be clear: there is no sign of any smoke taint here. It’s all about purity and length, brightness of flavour and seduction. Throw in some cloves and nutmeg too. There’s a lot going on though it had me on the mouthfeel of it. 95 points."  Campbell Mattinson

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Mid garnet red. Opulent sweet-fruited bouquet redolent of spiced damson plums and complemented by a gentle lick of toasty oak. The palate is quite silky and very generous, loaded with sweet dark fruit, a little dried bracken, hints of game and truffle; the texture is slippery with a long, dark and savoury finish.
Production Notes
Hand picked 15 March 2007. Clones 115 (68%) and 114 (32%) from the Creek Block on Judd Vineyard. Yield 1.91 tonnes/ha (0.8 t/acre, ~11.5hl/ha).
Winemaker Notes
100% destemmed. Macerated for 5 days before beginning a 100% wild yeast fermentation. The wine was then pressed (total 18 days on skins) before being transferred to 29% new and 71% old French oak barriques. 100% MLF in barrique, and after 16 months of oak maturation, the wine was bottled unfiltered after a light egg white fining.
Food Pairing Notes
Well suited to plum glazed roasted duck. Serve at 14–17°C
