Kayena Vineyard makes a big, generous style of Pinot Noir, unique for it's power and weight to match game recipes as strong as heavily sauced garlic and rosemary lamb. A good balance of ripe fruit, tannin astringency and cleansing acids persist, thoroughly enjoyable right now. The aim has been to achieve an elegant and complex expression of terroir, a blend of several clones is called upon to weave a fine, textural style. Maturation in French oak barriques is showing through with subtle spiciness and just a little extra grip on the palate without dominating.
Exclusively Pinot Noir from the prestigious Kayena Vineyard on West Tamar. A range of clones, including MV6, Pommard and 114, are assembled for complexity. A harvest of excellent condition with good ripeness and vivacious varietal fruit characters is delivered to the winery in pristine condition. Grapes are destemmed and left to cold soak for several days. Vinification takes place in open fermenters whilst being regularly pumped. Once dry, the ferment is passed through a basket press to barrel, a proportion is treated to post ferment maceration. Malolactic is followed by twelve months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES
Bright fleshy plum colour. Spicy cigar box bouquet, dark fruits over a subtle undertone of smoky oak. The palate is nicely firm with poised acid/tannin combination and sufficient fruit sweetness to keep it balanced. Kayena Vineyard offers firm structure and a full body that loves to evolve, a generously flavoured style of Pinot Noir that's the classic food match alongside roast duckling or pork sausage cassoulet.

About the Tamar Ridge Winery
Great wines are made in the vineyard and it is the exceptional fruit grown at the Kayena Vineyard that forms the cornerstone of the Tamar Ridge and Devil’s Corner range of wines
Located on the western banks of the Tamar River, 40 kilometres north of Launceston, the Kayena Vineyard is planted to a range of cool climate varieties including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Employing state-of-the-art winemaking techniques, but with more than a few concessions to the traditional techniques that have served winemakers for centuries, our winemaking goal is to harness the pristine fruit characters the Kayena Vineyard produces, fashioning them into individual wine styles that speak of their cool origins.
