Serrat Pinot Noir 2020
This wine is from the old block of MV6 Pinot Noir planted in 2001 (about 90%), plus a 10% proportion of newer plantings of 848, MV6 and Pommard clone. We added about 30% whole bunch in the ferments in 2020, which has given the wine quite a punchy and fragrant aroma, that evolves nicely as the wine sits in the glass. It was aged in a single 500 litre French oak puncheon that was one year old, on lees for 11 months.
The bouquet is dominated by the cherry and red fruit spectrum, strawberry, raspberry, spice, cherry, with detailed fragrance and floral notes.
The palate is at this stage tight and showing a silky tannin profile and lovely flow across the palate. It has a generosity and volume of fruit, and long silky finish.
