Artemis ‘The Crux’ Pinot Noir 2017
Artemis | Pinot Noir | Southern Highlands, NSW | 2017
Strawberry, black currant & cherry on the nose, caramel & spice on the palate, medium acidity and subtle oak.
Being a blend from 3 local Pinot sites, this wine is one of the Artemis bench mark flag ship wines. Known across the country for its upfront spice and strawberry notes with delicate tannins and elegant finish. By taking 15% free run off the crushed grapes after thirty minutes maceration, the colour and tanning extraction has been one of the more concentrated Pinot Noirs we have made in some time. This has also been reflected in the 2018 vintage that will be released next July. This wine is drinking lovely now and will cellar for 3 to 4 years.
