Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

Trentham Estate Pinot Noir

INSPIRED BY OUR SURROUNDINGS WE REFLECT ON THE ESSENTIAL NATURE OF THE MURRAY DARLING TO CREATE WINES OF DISTINCTION AND SUSTAINABILITY.

THE GRAPES Pinot Noir makes some of the most famous wines in the world, but is a challenging variety; temperamental in the vineyard and needs nurturing in the winery. Picked from our best vineyard, the grapes ripened slowly and evenly to result in great fruit quality.

THE VINTAGE Warm, dry weather during the 2018 harvest restricted our crop levels and helped to produce exceptional fruit quality with plenty of aromatics and flavour. Lower rain levels during the growing season translated into smaller berries packing their punch, making our winemakers very happy!

THE WINEMAKING The grapes were de-stemmed and pumped through a chiller into the fermentation vessel at 5⁰C and cold soaked for 36 hours before yeast was added. Cold soaking is a winemaking technique used to increase the red berry characters in the wine. After the addition of yeast, the wine was fermented on skins for 5 days before pressing out. A portion of the wine was matured in French oak before blending and bottling.

THE WINE Cherry red with plum and spice aromas, berry fruit flavours with subtle French oak and a soft silky finish.

THE FOOD An excellent choice with an antipasto plate, light tomato-based pasta and almost any duck dish.

Trentham Estate

Trentham is a small boutique winery located on the banks of the Murray River. It produces wines of outstanding value for money with great varietal fruit flavours.

New South Wales

The first winery in the region was established in the 1880s by W.B. Chaffey (Mildura Wine Co at Merbein). Today there are around nine/ten wineries in this region. This may not sound so many for a large area, but they are some of the largest wineries and their production is enormous. References such as: ‘the industrial heartland of Australian wine production’, ‘the powerhouse of the Australian wine industry’ are often used to describe this region wine production. The climate is continental; hot and dry with low rainfall making it a relatively fungus disease free region thus reducing the risk for such large-scale production. The main wine styles: Chardonnay, Semillon.
