The influence of winemaker-wunderkind Jim Chatto (Chief Winemaker Kreglinger Wine Estates) and vine-whisperer consultant Ray Guerin has put Pipers Brook Vineyard and Kreglinger Wine Estates' Pinots back where they belong - in the upper echelon of Tasmanian pinot achievement.
Produced from grapes grown at Pipers Brook and at Strathlynn on the west bank of the Tamar River, 70km away. Northeast sites, close to Bass Strait, are subject to strong maritime influences. Hillside slopes in the Tamar Valley offer vines some protection from prevailing westerly winds, promoting warm, settled and relatively dry growing conditions. Sites around Pipers Brook feature Ferrosol (volcanic) soils, while those in the Tamar Valley are Vertosol (black cracking clay) soils. Both soil types have excellent water-holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to the vines throughout the growing season. Pioneering clonal selection and mass selection sites of vines ageing up to 40 years consistently provides concentration and depth of character. Vines are grown on Vertical Shoot Positioned (VSP) trellises, which help to expose bunches to the sun, thus achieving full ripeness with well-balanced flavours and fine, ripe tannins. All fruit is picked and sorted by hand.
Ruby red in colour with a soft blue/purple hue. An attractive fine floral bouquet, the delicate fruit sent of strawberry and cherry aromas are well interwoven with the more complex secondary aromas of the savoury game meats, leather and dark chocolate, balanced by the nutty vanillin notes from fine French oak maturation. The palate is finely stated, concentrated with nice weight, fleshy fruits, depth and delicate flavours. It displays all the fine maritime hallmarks of cool climate Tasmanian Pinot Noir with ripe and juicy berry fruits, elegantly packaged on the palate with fine long silky tannins that provide just the right level of grip and texture to a flavoursome and lingering finish.
