2023 Great Southern Pinot Noir

2023 Great Southern Pinot Noir

Harvest: 21-03-2023 | Bottled: 13-02-2024 | Alc: 13.5% | pH: 3.69 | T.A.: 6.0g/L

Colour: Light red

Bouquet: An aromatic aroma reminiscent of strawberries and red currants with herbal undertones.

Palate: On the palate, strawberry flavours take centre stage, supported by delicate, velvety tannins, and a lively spice that lingers on the finish. Quality French oak imparts a subtle savouriness, while balanced acidity contributes to a prolonged and intricate conclusion.

Cellaring: The 2023 vintage is enjoyable for immediate consumption, but for those seeking a more developed profile, it can be cellared for 8-10 years to enhance the emergence of earthy, savory, and tobacco characteristics

Food pairing: We suggest complementing our Pinot Noir with grilled salmon, braised duck, or creating a perfect moment with an assortment of cheese, charcuterie, and great company.

Winemaking: Grapes from our Patterson's Vineyard were crushed, destemmed, and fermented in a closed tank with daily pump-overs. Once ferment dropped below 2 Baume a portion of wine was moved to new French oak barrels for barrel fermentation. The remaining wine, post-pressing, went into older French oak barrels with medium lees. The wine had a 10- month maturation (24% new barrels).

Winemaker: Rob Diletti

" This little vineyard 3drops acquired a few years ago consistently produces excellent pinot noir.This one is a beauty. Spicy dark cherry with a lift of aromatic strawberry on the nose. The palate has a spicy influence through the dark cherry fruit flavours ..."

      *   2022 vintage - 93 points Huon Hooke, The Real Review

" Very good deep-red purple; the buoquet show lots of smart oak but also deep ripe dark-cherry fruit with attractive pinoty sweetness, and a touch of forest-floor ..... Great value.

      *   2022 vintage - 91 points James Halliday. Australian Wine Companion

"... forest berries (strawberries), soused cherries, and spices beating on the door. Another year should bring changes across the board, and yet more therafter"

      *   2021 vintage - 96 points James Halliday, The Weekend Australian January 2023

"This establishes its quality from the first sip, the texture and structure with greater depth and forest floor complexity than most others from the Great Southern. There is a beating pulse to this wine that will capture attention for years. Drink to 2035."

"Serious and playful at once. Overt, lush, deep, dark, red fruits in abundance. Ripe, wild strawberries with subtle cedar and toast from time in oak. What sets this apart is a seamlessness on the palate. Everything in its place. Resolved delicate tannins, sit lightly amongst raspberry, spice and field mushroom. A young wine but ready to drink. Why wait?"

  • 2021 vintage - 93 points Ray Jordan, The WA Wine Review

"Take in the first sniff of fresh strawberries and you know immediately you are in a heady zone. This is a mighty impressive pinot. The combination of spicy red fruits and an ever so subtle truffle character is most appealing. The palate has a fine persistent acidity contributing to a firm spine. Cellar 8 years"
