Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
As ever, painfully low yields make the Judd Pinot Noir an extremely concentrated wine. Indeed this feels like a classic Mornington Pinot, the sappy strawberry fruit lifted up by background vanillan oak sweetness. It’s a masculine Pinot this year, the open flavours through the mid palate brought back in by a finish with low acidity but with pronounced tannins and drive. A powerful Judd release, with high potential for cellaring joy. Andrew Graham [February 2018, commissioned by TMBT]
Production Notes
Hand picked 4-7 March 2016. Clone 115 (100%) from the Creek Block (100%) on our Judd vineyard. Yield 2.45 tonnes/ha (1.0 t/acre, ~15hl/ha)
Winemaker Notes
• 100% destemmed • 6 day pre-ferment maceration • 100% wild yeast fermentation with manual plunging • short post-ferment maceration, total 24 days on skins • following pressing and short settling period the wine was transferred to 17% new French oak barriques • bottled unfined and unfiltered following a total of 12 months of oak maturation
Food Pairing Notes
To counter those tannins you need red meat, and a beef brisket would work nicely. Serve at 14–17°C.

Vintage Notes

After a very cold winter, the 2016 growing season had the highest average maximum temperature (23ºC v 21.8ºC avg), earliest flowering (10 days earlier than average) and harvest dates(23 days earlier than average) on record, lowest growing season rainfall (211mm v 348mm avg) and shortest hang time (budburst-harvest; 21 days shorter than average). The result was a dry and warm vintage with good yields.
