2023 Backyard Pinot Noir (Mt. Barker)
Our 2023 Pinot Noir is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown in the renowned Mt Barker sub-region of the Great Southern. It reflects our winemaking skills and commitment to finding the best fruit and applying simple, traditional winemaking techniques to deliver what we believe is a fine example of a style whilst remaining a classical example of the variety.
Colour: Medium ruby red.
Aroma: Lifted aromas of bright red cherry, raspberries, rose water and nuances of violets. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg spice, vanillan oak and a hint of stalkiness.
Palate: Light to medium bodied dry red wine with a soft generous palate. Fine soft tannins, sweet berry fruits supported by chocolate and vanillan oak. Well balanced with good natural acidity and length.
Food matching: Pair with salmon or duck.
Cellaring: Drinks well now, but medium term cellaring will see further complexity develop.
