Holm Oak The Protégé Pinot Noir 2021 (Tamar Valley, Tasmania) "...cherry, strawberry, spice..."
Classic Tasmanian Pinot Noir. Fresh and fruity, it is bursting with cherry and strawberry fruits with a silky palate. Definitely an ace! This fresh, lively and aromatic Pinot shows lovely lifted strawberry and spice characters on the nose.
These aromatics carry through to the palate which has fine, soft tannin, lovely bright fruit and juicy acidity. This is a gorgeously light Tasmanian Pinot Noir which is perfect drinking at any time.
This Pinot made to be a lighter more fruit driven style of Pinot with some underlying spicy complexity. To achieve this, we have picked the fruit at moderate sugar levels when the fruit is displaying lovely fresh strawberry and cherry characters. The fruit is then de-stemmed and fermented on skins for 10 days. Specific yeasts which are known to enhance fruit aromatics are used to conduct the ferment. Following fermentation, the wine was matured in tank prior to being bottled.
