Cape Banks, Pinot Noir, Mount Gambier 2013

Cape Banks, Pinot Noir, Mount Gambier 2013

$24.95

Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex bouquet awash with true Pinot characters. It has hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cherry notes.

Mount Gambier is the perfect spot to create really good Pinot. The temperatures between Mount Gambier and the most famous French Pinot Noir region – Burgundy are extremely similar. If you add all the temperatures of the growing season together (minus 10 degree base temp), it gives you the Biological Effective Degree Days (BEDD). For 1st Cru Areas of Burgundy, the BEDD is 1242 and 1245 for Mt Gambier.

Named after the Cape Banks Lighthouse, which is only 30mins drive from our vineyards, near Carpenter Rocks on South Australia’s rugged South East coastline.

Food match: Tea smoked duck breast and roast potatoes with truffle salt.

“Fragrant, fine and savoury, typical of Mount Gambier’s very cool climate; juicy red fruits, plus a superfine gossamer of tannins providing more flavour than the usual texture.” – James Halliday, 92 points
