Family Reserve Tasmania Pinot Noir, Trentham Estate

Tasmania Pinot Noir is part of Trentham Estate's carefully-selected Family Reserve Range that aims to epitomise the best the region has to offer.

Semi translucent bright red colour with a light purple hue. Fragrant ripe cherry and strawberry scents mingle with forest floor characters and a subtle meatiness. The palate is adorned by fresh red fruits infused with fresh herbs and underlying spice. Bright acidity and finely grained tannins complement a savoury, medium-length finish.

Vinification details

Harvested during the cool early morning temperatures, the grapes were destemmed without delay, except for a small percentage of whole bunches which were added directly to the fermentation vessels. The fruit was allowed to soak at cool temperatures for 5-7 days before wild fermentation commenced, then inoculated with cultured yeast and fermented at between 25-30°C in stainless vessels. The wine was gently pressed off skins prior to full malolactic fermentation. Bottled under screw cap to preserve aromatics and fruit expression.

Vintage conditions

The 2015 Tasmanian wine vintage will be a much sought after one, based on high quality and not much of it! The vineyard produced clean fruit at low to moderate Baume with high natural acidity, exhibiting excellent varietal characteristics.

Vinification details

Grapes were de-stemmed and crushed before cold soaking for three days. Fermentation followed in open vats for seven days before pressing into French oak for maturation. After 14 months of maturation the wine was blended and bottled.

That Anthony Murphy magic is on full display here: first, finding the grapes; second, handling them with such skill; and third, managing to sell the wine at this price.
