Le Vieux Planty (The Old Planty)
Silver Medal - Médaille d'Argent - Concours International du Gamay
Silver Medal- Médaille d'Argent - Concours Général Agricole de Par
NO ADDED SULPHITES
This is a delicious medium bodied and FRUITY Gamay thanks to the decision to do a carbonic maceration* (see below) Candied nose with a touch of Cherry ( & little liquorice spice). Silky and delicate at just 12.5% Alc.
Personal comment this is a "quaffer" if a red can be described as that?: Really lovely fruit hit and almost a little sweet tasting (with 1% residual Sugar) Dare I say it, on a hot day I might quaff this a little chilled!!
Hand harvested from 3ha of 25-year-old vines
9 Months in Barrel
Cellaring Potential? - D des G say up to 5 years - Why bother? Drink it this year!!!
*For this vintage, D des G decided to do a carbonic maceration: This involves manually harvesting the grapes whole bunches and then putting them intact in a vat for 10-15 days. The maceration takes place inside each berry (effectively the grapes start fermenting on their own without breaking the skins). This allows to develop richer aromas, fruitiness more roundness and richness."
|The Terroir||Lowburn & Gibbston|
|Fermentation||2013 vintage presented us a long growing season allowing the fruit to ripen well and catch the best of the late autumn sun. Hawkshead Pinot Noir is aged for 11 month in French oak barrels.|
|Description||Bright redcurrant, dark cherry and wildflower aromatics, followed by a lush rich palate showing density texture and persistence.|
