Anders Sparrman Pinot Noir 2009

Vintage description

 – This wine is SOLD OUT –

Few other grape varieties will express its choice for a specific terroir to bring forth its true potential as clearly as pinot noir. The art is thus more to satisfy the need for the right choice of slope, soil type and climate, than the actual wine making.

During 2009, after four vintages and careful observation of the performance of our different clones on their respective different soil types, we finally discovered a new treasure between our barrels. This wine showed more depth and structure, rich and full with dark-coloured berry fruits.

The vineyard is on a South East slope on white quartzite gravel with a coalin clay under layer. The small crop of 2.4 t/ha was hand harvested during mid-February 2009. February was a cool, dry month in Elim, with an average temperature of 20.3oC. The wine was matured in 300 litre French oak barrels from Burgundian coopers for 10 months (40% first-fill).
