2017 PINOT NOIR
Strawberry, black currant & cherry on the nose, caramel & spice on the palate, medium acidity and subtle oak.
Being a blend from 3 local Pinot sites, this wine is one of the Artemis bench mark flag ship wines. Known across the country for its upfront spice and strawberry notes with delicate tannins and elegant finish. By taking 15% free run off the crushed grapes after thirty minutes maceration, the colour and tanning extraction has been one of the more concentrated Pinot Noirs we have made in some time. This has also been reflected in the 2018 vintage that will be released next July. This wine is drinking lovely now and will cellar for 3 to 4 years.
Dedication to producing fine wines is evident with recent awards such as ...
2 x Silver at the largest officially recognised wine competition in the world ''AWC Vienna'' wine challenge
Gold for the 2008 Riesling at the Australian Highlands Wine Show
Silver & Bronze at the International Riesling Challenge 2015
