Tasting notes from the winery for Ngeringa Pinot Noir 2019

A ruby red Pinot Noir that is medium bodied with vibrant, lifted red fruit aromas, along with fine herbal spice and earthy aromas derived largely from carbonic maceration. Fruit flavors include red plums and sour cherries. Texture is crunchy. 

Made from predominantly whole bunch fermentation, ready to drink now with plenty of lifted carbonic character.

Vintage: 2019 gave little, but concentrated clean fruit, with average spring rainfall, a very dry summer and several heat-waves near harvest resulting in an early harvest. Importantly, cold nights throughout Feb/Mar helped retain brightness in the fruit profile and high natural acidity. 

Vineyard: Grown in our east-facing Summit Vineyard, which collects more of the morning sunlight and less of the intense, direct afternoon heat. Altitude ranges between 330m and 360m above sea level and the soil consists of sandy loam over red-orange clay, sandstone and ironstone. Fruit for this wine comes predominantly from the upper and lower sections of the Summit Vineyard, while the middle section goes to our Single Vineyard Pinot. The entire farm is certified biodynamic and is farmed with the rhythms of nature, tending towards a self-sustaining system without the use of synthetic chemical inputs. 

Winemaking: The Pinot Noir is gently hand harvested into small 15kg crates and carefully tipped into one stainless steel fermenter keeping the berries in-tact for a true carbonic maceration. The grapes are allowed to steep for 7 days before a gentle press in to well-seasoned French barriques where the wines mature for 11 months. A small dose of sulphur is added at blending, prior to bottling. No enzymes, no fining, no filtration. 

Winery: Ngeringa has been certified biodynamic for more than 20 years. It is the biodynamic process that creates a balanced and healthy relationship between soil, plant and all living beings – and opens the vines to optimum expression of flavour in the glass.
