Crushed & Cured
Trinity Hill Hawkes Bay, Hawkes Bay Pinot Noir, 2021
This wine boasts fresh fruit characters on the nose, including cherry and strawberry, combined with sweet spices. On the palate, the wine has soft, velvety tannins and will develop complex forest-floor and earthy characters with bottle age.
This wine is a blend of a number of clones (mainly 667 and 777), which were fermented separately, either with a high percentage of whole berries or some stem inclusion. The ferments were either gently plunged or pumped over once a day to extract a fine structure and produce a supple texture. After fermentation, the wine was matured in tank for six months and bottled early to capture the variety’s beautiful perfume and freshness.
