Pinot Noir | 6-PACK

Pinot noir loves a continental climate, giving much favour to the Great Southern region of Mount Barker where this elegant, well-balanced red was grown. Chris Murtha from Plantagenet Wines has ensured that while traditional pinot fruit characters are the dominant force, oak has been deftly woven into the flavour profile, offering a restrained and very classy wine.

MIKE’S WINE NOTES:

Mike Davies – Wine Maker – Founder Greenskin Wine

Pinot Noir is a challenging grape to grow and then just as challenging to vinify into great wine once the fruit is in the winery.

A native of the Burgundy region, Pinot Noir enjoys a continental climate (not much wind, low min temps and high max temps) which means the Great southern and more specifically Mount Barker, is best suited to the growing of this variety in WA.

This wine was made by Chris Murtha from Plantagenet Wines, one of the pioneering wineries of the region. Chris has crafted this elegant & well-balanced wine, and while Pinot fruit characters are the dominant force, his experienced craftsmanship and deft use of oak have delivered a restrained and very classy wine.

Colour: Light & bright red colour.
Bouquet: Fragrance of strawberries, confectionary, new leather and tobacco.
Taste: The palate is light & lifted with primary flavours of fresh forest berries and charcuterie with earthy & nutty hints providing further attraction. A firm tannin finish completes this well-crafted Pinot Noir.

    Worth every penny!
    Had my first Greenskin Pinot this week end for dinner with a slow cooked beef stew on a rainy day…
    I was excited to use the new package on the table. It is funky and surely attracts comments.
    Ok I could not resist to use the decanter just for the fun of it and add some ritual.
    This Pinot Noir competes with the best around. Well balanced, subtle and engaging like a Beethoven symphony. I could relate to hints of black currant, dark chocolate and even grapefruit… More please!

    Love this mellow, slow-burn of a wine. Delicious when it’s had the chance to open up a little (like moi!).
