2019 Judd Pinot Noir

2019 Judd Pinot Noir

2019 Judd Pinot Noir

Lovely red fruits, lifted spice, aniseed and strawberry combine with a herbal, lavender lift, from start to finish on this wine. There are hints of white pepper and sage that join in with the lingering mineral and sultry tannins to end the journey.

Other Notes
Following a lower than average rainfall and relatively standard temperatures over the winter, cooler temperatures in August and September led to late budburst (our second latest) and flowering (fourth latest). However, above average temperatures and low rainfall during summer meant an early veraison and harvest (our second earliest). The period between flowering and veraison saw our warmest ever average minimums and second warmest maximums and was our second shortest (62 days against a 72 day average). Veraison to harvest was our fourth warmest (maximums) and our driest (47mm v 136mm average) and our third shortest (43 days against a 56 day average).
