2009 TÊTE DE CUVÉE GALPIN PEAK PINOT NOIR

2009 TÊTE DE CUVÉE GALPIN PEAK PINOT NOIR




What makes Pinot noir so special is that it displays both a delicacy and richness, but it is often quoted as depicting little varietal character of its own, but rather expressing the terroir upon which it is grown, hence it carries the crown of being the most terroir expressive of all grape varieties.

Tête de Cuvée reflects the winemaker's opportunity to create a blend from a handful of chosen, best barrels in the cellar from a particular vintage. Not every vintage presents suitable quality for this selection.

Vintage 2009 offered a rain free summer with relatively dry conditions which impacted favourably to produce small berried fruit with intense colour and concentration. This resulted in a wine which needs time to develop and promises to be a classic bottling for those who are prepared to wait.

It is a black fruit driven Pinot noir boasting flavours of mulberries, plums and violets and lingers with a nutty fullness and good tannins.

Bottle ageing recommended!
