Bay of Fires Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium cherry red in colour, the complex perfume of this sophisticated wine is compelling. Brooding raspberry and cherry fruits feature with spicy whole-bunch ferment complexity showing through as sweet nutmeg and earthy tones.

Out of extraordinary challenges, come exceptional results. It's no easy task growing vines in Tasmania – it requires lots of passion, hard work, commitment and knowledge. But from the vineyards nurtured with these four qualities comes truly remarkable fruit and the Bay of Fires range of wines. Our vines enjoy a cool, maritime climate that provides steadier ripening conditions, however, with it come the challenges of lower sunlight levels and a greater variation in terroir – the very complexities that spur on our determination. All the vines are painstakingly pruned and trellised in the single cordon vertical shoot (Guyot) technique to protect them against the elements that are as fickle as the winds that carry them. Just like the sub-regions of our island state, every vineyard has a unique and distinctive character forged out of its soil, its climate and of course its careful management. So we believe it is our job then to bring together an entire team, all of whom ensure the varietal characteristics are revealed, preserved and celebrated in every wine we create for you. Read less

Enjoyed this on 5 May, 2012 with home smoked salmon fillet at our weekend house. My oldest daughter brought this bottle from the wine yard in Tasmania back in December 2012. Very nice "new zealandish" pinot with ripe raspberry, blue berry, light vanilla and cedar. Highly enjoyable now, but could improve with one-two years of cellaring.
