Découverte Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Dundee Hills AVA
  • 75cl bottle

A nice and brilliant colour, with an expressive nose of cherry, blackberries, wild mint, fresh liquorice and noble wood. Vibrant and energetic, the palate reveals a subtle balance and elegant floral notes. The finish is mineral driven, expressing the complexity of the Jory soil.

Vineyards

Meaning "Discovery" in French and produced from the second Estate Vineyard owned by Résonance, the Découverte Vineyard Pinot Noir displays the best of the Dundee Hills AVA.

Vintage

After a complicated start to the growing season with a number of frost episodes, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.

Winemaking

Traditional fermentation followed by 17 months in French oak barrels, 30% new

Enjoy with:
