The 2011 Hawkshead Bannockburn Pinot Noir has a complex aroma of red and black berries, violets and cherries. The palate is fluid and mouth filling. Fine tannins give the wine fibre from mid palate through to a long and persistent finish. The flavours are rich, with a fine blend of cherry and red plum, briar and French oak.
The wine was made by hand in small open tanks without the addition of yeast and very little intervention, but with constant and diligent attention. Then aged in French oak barrels (1/3 new). After 12 month the wine was returned into a small tank and allow to settle through the cold winter month.
