Marco Lubiana Huon & Derwent Pinot Noir 2022 - Tasmania
Bottle size: 750ml
The 2022 Pinot Noir is 2/3 Huon Valley and 1/3 Derwent Valley, from Estate Lubiana family vineyards. The wine is made from a mixture of whole bunch (Derwent) and whole berry (Huon), there is a gentle fermentation and long elevage in 228L barrels with 15% new French oak. This resulted in a wine with fresh notes of raspberry, wild blueberries, cherries and pomegranate, forest floor and spice, there is more acid than the previous vintage and grippier tannins. Last year the Pinot Noir was very approachable on release, this year the wine is tighter and will reward the customer with cellaring, if you choose to drink now I would recommended decanting it.
Delicious new Pinot Noir from Marco. Recommended.
Two-thirds Huon Valley and one-third Derwent Valley fruit matured in 15% new French oak. Bright ruby with finely detailed aromas of red cherry, wild strawberries, raspberry coulis and some blueberry crunch. Hints of forest floor, gentle exotic spice and amaro herbs, mushroom broth and roast duck off in the distance. Plenty of space and detail on the palate with a lovely fruit purity, a stony presence, bright acidity and compact tannin framework. It makes for beautiful drinking now but will reward cellaring.
The 2022 growing season started with some frost in the Huon, however the team was out in force burning fires on those frosty nights to mitigate as much damage as we could, we were successful and had little damage. The flowering of the grapes were good in both Huon and Derwent vineyards, the summer was moderate, not too much rain but more than average. The harvest period provided great weather conditions with little rain, this resulted in ripe fruit in pristine condition. The wine is a blend of the two sites, the soil types vary from Huon cobble stones with white clay to Derwent soil which is red clay over gravely chalk deposits. This vintage is very special to me I am very happy with the quality of my fourth release wines of 2022.
