JULES TAYLOR OTQ PINOT NOIR 2020

Violet, poached plum and stewed tamarillo notes overlay darker hints of blackberry and
vanilla compote. The nose is completed by lovely smoky, earthy spice and hints of cocoa
and cinnamon from the French oak barriques. Generous and juicy on the palate, this Pinot Noir has an elegant structure embracing a beautiful balance of berry fruit and savoury flavours. Smoky oak and firm, spicy tannins leading to a long, dry finish.

VINTAGE NOTES T

he season started cool and unsettled, but temperatures quickly warmed up leading to an early, quick flowering. The last substantial rainfall of summer was on 17th December and after that Marlborough dried out. This wasn’t obvious early in January as ash from the Australian bushfires resulted in a lot of cooler cloudy weather. However, the season warmed up in February and the grapes went through veraison in very good, clean condition. In the last week or so the nights cooled off, allowing extra flavour development heading into harvest. On Monday 23rd March, as we were handpicking our first Sauvignon Blanc, we heard that New Zealand was heading into lockdown for a month. Thankfully, harvest was able to continue and the weather played its part superbly. Apart from the stress caused by virus, the harvest was a breeze with some of the best condition fruit we have ever seen. The last grapes were harvested on 6th April and brought the surreal vintage to a close.
