Tasting Notes

The 2017 vintage was characterised by a cool start, patchy weather and what passed for summer starting in late February – i.e. an awkward year in the vineyard.
Despite these conditions our fruit came in clean and we picked between 5-10 April.  Average brix a little lighter than usual at 22.7.  The wine is savoury (10/5 clone) and delicious with a lighter texture than the 2016 – a delicate little number reminding you that unlike cabernet, which is bigger, Pinot Noir is complex and gentle simultaneously.
As someone said, “ it expresses the vineyard perfectly.”  The greatest compliment is “Its typical – very Pinot.”  Try it with pork, mushrooms and densely textured fish like salmon, tuna, groper etc.  Cellared properly Pizzicato ‘17 will travel gracefully to 2022.
Not understanding Pinot any better than economics PresidentTrump was caught recently sprinkling burgundy on a raspberry cupcake.  This is not recommended.


Price: $38.00
