Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Noir 2009 Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Noir 2009

Another stunning wine from one of our most popular wineries. Fiona Turner's Tinpot Hot goes from strength to strength with each vintage and this exciting Marlborough Pinot Noir gives classic ripe cherry and plum flavours combined with a classic Pinot earthiness. At this price, one of the true bargains of the year!



VINEYARD
The fruit for this wine was sourced from two well tended, low yielding vineyards in the Blind River and Conders Bend regions, in Marlborough.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Pinot Noir

VINIFICATION
The fruit was picked at optimum ripeness and carefully transported to the winery for de-stemming and chilling. Each batch of fruit was kept separate in small open top stainless steel fermenters, and cold soaked for 4-5 days to extract maximum flavour and enhance colour stability. The wine was fermented using a mixture of selected yeast strains, and hand plunged up to 6 times daily.

After fermentation several batches were put in a mixture of new and older French oak barrels. The remaining batches were aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the delicate fruit characters. Each batch went through malolactic fermentation and was aged on lees before being blending and bottling.

TASTING NOTE
Lifted aromas of cherries and plums, with a hint of redcurrant. Attractive floral notes also shine through which are nicely integrated with savoury mushroom and toasty oak characters. Classic cherry flavours dominate the palate and are supported by hints of plum and redcurrant. Structurally the tannins are soft and silky, and well balanced acidity ensures good length of flavour.
