The Grape
Pinot Noir has been referred to as the noblest of all grape varieties, making some of the most famous of all red wines, but it is difficult to grow and make. The Trentham 2009 Pinot Noir is made from four different clones which produce grapes of varying colour and flavour, which adds complexity and weight to the final wine.

The Harvest Vintage 2009 was challenging. Drought conditions prevailed and coupled with hot weather the ripening environment was not ideal. Despite these tough environment conditions, the fruit was still of a great quality and the grapes had a diverse range of natural fruit flavours.

The Winemaking Mid-February the Pinot Noir grapes were harvested. The berries were destemmed upon arrival at the winery and then transferred to the fermentation vessel and allowed to cold soak for 36 hours, then the must was inoculated with yeast and a moderate temperature fermentation occurred. Post fermentation the wine was pressed and then matured with French and American oak prior to stabilisation, clarification and bottling in November 2009.

Aroma Aromas of sweet red berries, mocha and subtle vanilla follow to the palate.

'The secret to making inexpensive pinot noir that actually smells and tastes like pinot noir has been mastered by Anthony Murphy at this picturesque riverside winery in the Murray valley, near Mildura. His wine has few peers for value. The '09 may well be the best yet; a wine with varietal refinement that belies its modest price tag. Plum, cherry, spice and a whisper of oak harmonise on the nose in pleasant, juicy intensity. The palate offers succulent, silky fruit in the middle, light to medium body, persistent red berry flavours and a long, pleasantly tapering finish without any edges. Very gluggable.'

'WINE OF THE WEEK' 4 1/2 stars Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age 'Epicure', 25 May 2010.
