Jealous Sisters Pinot Noir - Gladstone Vineyards (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
A 'by-the-glass' must, this handbitingly pretty Pinot is so pure & expressive.
The grapes were grown at Dakins Road, Boyd and Biddeford blocks, as well as some fruit purchased from the Martinborough area. A variety of clones were selected for this wine, allowing for a well balanced product expressing opulent, dark fruit from the Dijon clones to the savoury, spicy elements from the structural clones like 10/5 and Abel. All fruit was hand picked and processed with care to insure maximum quality and site expression. The fruit was crushed and destemmed with about 20% of the fruit left as whole berries. The fruit was gravity fed into small open top plastic fermenters. All clones were vinified and matured in separate batches and only blended together at the very last stage of winemaking. Yeasts were inoculated and the ferments plunged twice daily to help soft extraction of colour and tannins from the skins. A post-ferment maceration for up to two weeks allowed optimal body and structure in the wine. The wine was then matured in individual batches for 10 months before final blending. The wine is a true expression of minimalist intervention, site-specific winemaking.
Hugely lifted wild strawberry nose that follows through on the full, earthy palate. This immensely drinkable Pinot Noir demands a second bottle as much as a second glass and would sucker up to pink beef or duck amazingly well.
Great with duck or beef Carpaccio, lamb shanks, rare roast beef, rich roasted veg, melting shallots, roasted monfish in garlic & tomato. Yum.
