Ten Minutes By Tractor Down The Hill Pinot Noir 2019

  • $56.00*

True to its sub-regional style, our Down the Hill Pinot Noir shows off those dark fruits of plum andmulberry with lifted spice and violet. The rustic tannins shape the mouth and compliment those rich fruit characters.

Lower than average rainfall and relatively standard temperatures over winter, and coolertemperatures in August and September, led to late budburst (oursecond latest) and flowering. However, above average temperatures and low rainfall during summer meant an early veraison and harvest. The period between flowering and veraison saw our warmest ever average minimum and second warmest maximums. Veraison to harvest was our fourth warmest maximums and our driest (47mm v 136mm average). Five days of above average temperatures at the beginning of harvest compressed the vintage further. Yields are normal and fruit quality is outstanding.
