2019 Te Kano Fume Blanc de Noir

$45 NZD inc. GST

SKU: 19TKRESBDN-Bottle Category:

Description

A complex, weighty and textural wine made entirely from Pinot Noir. Barrel fermented characters of flint, butterscotch and toast combine with red apple, peach and citrus in this unique take on Blanc de Noir.

Vintage
Spring and Summer were cooler and wetter than usual, with the long ripening period allowing flavours to build in intensity while retaining freshness and vibrancy.

Vineyards

The Eliza vineyard forms the backbone of this unique wine, with bright fresh acids and delicate flavours and aromas. The heavy clay
and alluvial gravels of this block lend themselves to bigger bunches and berries, yielding juice with just the faintest touch of pink, and ultimately a brilliant, pale wine with just a hint of blush. Fruit from our Jerome vineyard lends fruit intensity and structure.

Varietal
100% Pinot Noir, clones Abel, 115 and 5.

Winemaking
Hand picked Pinot Noir grapes were delicately whole bunch pressed directly to barrel. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts ensued, followed by partial malolactic fermentation and 9 months in French oak barriques. Weekly lees stirring delivered mid palate weight and complexity, resulting in a mineral and balanced wine with freshness, vibrancy and composure.
