Winemaking Notes: This Pinot is made to be a lighter, more fruit driven style of Pinot. To achieve this we have picked the fruit at moderate sugar levels when the fruit is displaying lovely fresh strawberry and cherry characters. The fruit is then de-stemmed and fermented in large open top fermenters which were hand plunged. Specific yeasts which are known to enhance fruit aromatics are used to conduct the ferment. Following fermentation the wine underwent MLF in tank prior to being bottled.
Tasting Notes: This fresh, lively and aromatic Pinot shows lovely lifted strawberry, dark cherry and spice characters on the nose. These aromatics carry through to the palate which has fine, soft tannin, lovely bright fruit and juicy acidity. This is a gorgeously light Tasmanian Pinot Noir which is perfect drinking at any time.
Food Match: The ‘Ilex’ Pinot has lovely fresh fruit aromas and juicy acidity. It is a lighter style of Pinot, but has enough intensity to match well with smoked salmon. The acidity in the wine balances well with the oiliness of the fish.
