Serrat Pinot Noir 2014

Again, these are the winemaking details for the 2013. But I wouldn’t imagine that too much has changed. “Hand picked, destemmed only into small open fermenters, 25% whole fruit included. On skins for 15 days, hand plunged, gently pressed to 500 L French oak puncheons for 11 months. 10% new oak.” The Serrat vineyard is planted at 8800 vines per hectare.

Complexity reigns. It’s essentially a bright, almost cranberried, fruit-filled wine but the array of spices and undergrowth, forest floor and woodsmoke makes for a fantastic show. It’s light in colour but satiny as it rolls along the tongue. Fundamentally delicious, without being at all dumbed down.
