Description & Technical Information
-
Rathfinny Estate Blanc de Noirs 2015 is the first vintage of their premium Pinot Noir/Meunier blend, produced from grapes grown and hand-harvested on Rathfinny Wine Estate. It has an enticing blush which sets the scene for perfumed peony and wild strawberry on the nose, while on the palate, its rich mousse of raspberries and toasted almonds gives way to a caramelised red-apple finish.

Weather: Spring arrived late in 2015 after a cold winter, both budburst and flowering were a week later than 2014, but we had a reasonable flowering and a warm summer which helped ripen a small crop. We began harvest on the 19th October and despite the rainfall in August and September the fruit was very clean and of good quality.
