Wine Profile
TASTING NOTES
Purple edges, bright with garnet hues. Dark cherry, raspberry with subtle violet florals, baking spice. Dark cherry and juicy plum fruit flavours are complemented by supple tannins. Great persistence and structure in this medium bodied red wine.
VINEYARD
The vineyard, planted on soil identified as being ideal for producing varietal Pinot Noir, contributes unique character and complexity to the final wine. Pinot Noir grapes are drawn from a single vineyard located near Yarra Junction at around 220 metres above sea level. A range of different Pinot Noir clones come together in this composition, each adding subtle elements of complexity. The vineyard was meticulously maintained during the growing season to achieve dappled light throughout the canopy, ensuring the development of tannins and pristine varietal flavours.
WINE MAKING
The 2015 Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir was harvested when the grapes were displaying optimum flavour intensity and acid balance. Each parcel was assessed and a combination of maceration methods used to optimise aromatic and structural elements in the final wine, including whole bunch inclusion in the musts and cold prefermentation. Warm fermentation temperatures were managed in small open fermenters with daily plunging to extract colour, flavour and tannins from the fruit. Eleven months lees contact and complete malolactic fermentation took place in fine French oak barrels. Following this, the wine was clarified, blended and bottled in July 2016.
Food Pairing Notes
Rolled roast pork porchetta; Peking duck. Mushroom ravioli.
Other Notes
Mild conditions in late winter and a favourable start to spring resulted in an early budburst for varieties such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Late spring and early summer provided ideal conditions leading into veraison. Summer remained mild, with few days in excess of 35°C. This, combined with good canopy cover and cool nights, resulted in one of the best vintages for early varieties since 2002. Abundant flavour with some of the best acid balance we have seen shows amazing promise for the complexity and longevity of the 2015 wines.
