The 2012 Gamla Pinot Noir shows off attractive characters of ripe strawberries, fresh raspberries, red apples and sour cherries, rounded out by notes of flowers and spice. Light- to medium-bodied, this Pinot Noir is complex and refined.
41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot.
The wine displays rich aromas of plum, black cherry and fresh berry, a touch of light grass, and notes of maple and browned butter. With well-balanced acidity and a smooth, silky texture, the wine features a long-lasting and pleasing finish.
After 10-20 days of fermentation on skins at 28ºC (82ºF), the wine underwent full malolactic fermentation, and aged for about one year in oak barrels.
Following a rainy winter, the 2013 harvest season was characterized by relatively mild weather, enabling optimal vine growth and outstanding grape quality. The harvest’s unique climatic conditions led to uniform ripening in the vineyards, leading to most of the harvested fruit arriving at the winery in September. The quality of this harvest appears to be very high.
