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.
