Wild Earth Pinot Noir 2015 - fiche technique

Wild Earth founder Quintin Quider is an expatriate Californian who has spent many years living on the South Island. He has gathered a small, dedicated team to produce his Wild Earth range in Central Otago. Established in 1998, Wild Earth Wines owns 35 hectares of vineyards in two of the region's finest locations - at the end of Felton Road overlooking the Kawarau River and in the North Lowburn district beneath the imposing Pisa Range.

The grapes for this single-vineyard wine come from the Terraces vineyard in Felton Road, Bannockburn which is planted with predominantly Dijon clones (777,115 ,114 and 667).

The 2014/15 growing season was cooler, with frosts challenging growers in both spring and late autumn. Summer was relatively dry, with good periods of warm days and cool nights. Pinot Noirs from this vintage are elegant and pure, characterised by exceptional fragrance.

The grapes were hand harvested at optimal ripeness from early to mid-April. Six separate ferments went into the blend, which used on average 20% whole clusters with a total time on skins between three and four weeks to boost the tannic structure and aromatics of the wine. Maturation took place in fine grained French oak barriques (25% new, 40% one-year old and the remainder between two and five years old), for approximately 12 months.

A bright garnet colour with aromas of cherry, plum, thyme, wild flowers and sage. This enticing Pinot Noir has sweet cherry, strawberry, wild thyme and mushroom complementing an incredibly textured palate that is both creamy and persistent. Along with silky fine tannins, this Pinot Noir is both harmonious and graceful on the finish with great ageing potential.
