2015 Holyman Project X Pinot Noir


As always with this wine there is a hint of cola on the nose, as well as some dried herb and pomegranate.  The fruit in the mouth is subdued but there is cherry and raspberry with a finish of freshness from the garden strawberry.  There is a structure to this wine that makes Joe happy....and that's not easy!  The balance of the fresh fruit and the dry tannin from the whole bunch give this wine a length and strength that will see it living for a very long time.  

  • 100% whole bunch

  • 100% new French oak

  • 100% estate grown - vines planted in 1986

  • Single block

  • Only 1 tonne of fruit - making approx 55 dozen

  • Non irrigated vines

  • No fining or filtration

The 2015 vintage will go down in Tasmania as one of our very best vintages.  It was a fantastic growing season, and while there was some rain during harvest it didn't cause any problems as all of the hard work had been done by then.
