Super Nanny Pinot Noir, Central Otago 2017

NEN006

Endeavour Wines

Every season there is inevitably one or two parcels of fruit that stand head and shoulders above the rest in the vineyard. With the use of hand sorting, gentle handling, wild ferment, inclusion of whole bunches, extended skin contact and 15 months maturation in French oak, our limited production Super Nanny allows these select parcels to tell the story of their own unique place of origin with absolute clarity.

Production

Two select parcels of fruit were handpicked then hand sorted upon arrival at the winery before being de-stemmed and transferred by gravity to small open top fermenters - one parcel with approximately 15% whole bunches included, and another with approximately 30% whole bunches. The must was cold soaked for up to seven days before warming and fermenting naturally, with the cap gently plunged up to three times daily to gain maximum colour and fl avour extraction. Following ferment, individual batches remained on skins with gentle maceration for an additional two weeks to enhance tannin structure before being gently pressed and settled for 48 hours prior to being run to 225L barrels (40% New) to complete a natural Malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

The Super Nanny Pinot Noir has a complex and seductive nose, showing ever changing layers of plums, bramble, sweet baking spice, dark chocolate, coffee, liqourice and an ethereal floral lift. The palate is rich upon entry, flowing on to a beautifully poised platform of dark berry fruits, dried herbs, forest floor and spice before a blanket of fine velverty tannins usher you towards a bright and persistent finish.

Food match

Will pair well with duck, venison and other gamey red meats.
