2019 Wallis Pinot Noir

2019 Wallis Pinot Noir

2019 Wallis Pinot Noir

Lifted red fruits give way to the darker, riper, cherry flavours. The palate is plush, spicy and round with elegant herbal, spice and autumnal notes that roll along with the fine mineral ‘up the hill’ tannins that engulf the finish.

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.)
