2018 Bangles Pinot Noir


Grape variety
Pinot Noir – 100% Estate grown grapes

Region and location
Flinders, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia

Approximately 45% whole bunches were used during fermentation with natural yeasts. This fragrant wine was made co-fermenting hand selected parcels from our close planted rows of Pinot Noir clones MV6, 115, 114 and 777

Ageing capacity
Will improve in bottle for 8-10 years

This wine is named after a tigress cub that almost died when she was elbowed out of her mother’s feeding zone by her stronger more dominant brothers. In 2018 this wine was released in place of the usual Reserve Pinot Noir.  Pale garnet with a developing nose of morello cherry, strawberry and a touch of sarsaparilla.  On the palate the wine has an intriguing combination of strawberry, a touch of wintergreen and very firm, fine, mouth coating tannins.  This wine is very structured and would be an excellent match to confit duck leg, with a buttery potato and beetroot mash. It is very young yet and will reward time in bottle.
