WILD EARTH SPECIAL EDITION PINOT NOIR
The growing season started off well with good soil moisture left over from winter. A cool start to October stalled growth, but welcome rainfall coupled with sunshine in November helped to remedy the delay. Consistently warm temperatures during flowering and fruit set in Spring made for an excellent start to crop growth. Late in December the temperatures cooled down for about six weeks until the end of January. The season picked up some heat in the latter part of summer with a warmer and drier than average autumn, meaning that harvest was earlier than usual.
The Special Edition Pinot Noir offers delicate perfumes of red and black cherry fruit, violets, spice and dried herbs. On the palate it is lush and supple, with flavours of rich red fruits, leather and tobacco. The tannins are silky and fine grained, balanced with a fresh, vibrant acidity and lifted finish.
