Giaconda Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

Giaconda wines have a super-cult status and, given the tiny production, are extremely difficult to find; they are sold chiefly through restaurants and by mail order. All have a cosmopolitan edge befitting Rick Kinzbrunner’s international winemaking experience.
This wine continues the phoenix like resurgence of Pinot Noir at Giaconda – new clones, new plantings and greater understanding of how to coax the very best out of this delightful and beguiling variety.

“One of the best expressions of pinot we have achieved at Giaconda so far…” – Rick Kinzbrunner, owner/winemaker.

Description

TECHNICAL DATA
Alcohol 13.5%

APPEARANCE
Magenta dye and blood red.

NOSE
Both red and black fruits play a part here; high toned, spicy notes jostle with a fragrant oak lift, balanced by roasted beetroot and blood plums.

PALATE
Simply seductive on the palate, rounded, spicy, elegant and yet so powerful.
The tannins are a masterclass in perfection, present yet discretely playing in the background whilst the fruit stands front of stage.
A wine that is truly complete.

AGEING
Aged in French Oak for almost 2 years and stored underground in a granite maturation cave.

PAIRING
Lamb, grilled meat, duck and other game birds are the recommended pairings.

READINESS FOR DRINKING
Drink now or keep from 7 to 20 years.
