Tasmania is the playground of the adventurous, showcasing the creative opportunities available to a new generation of vignerons.
Drawing on over 10 years of cool climate winemaking experience Naissante provides us with the avenue to explore alternative sites,
varieties and wine styles from across Tasmania. Naissante wines emphasize varietal character, elegant structure and natural balance by
continuing the traditional winemaking methods synonymous with Delamere Vineyard.
The 2011 season was notoriously challenging in Tasmania, with high rainfall and warm weather leading to high risk of disease. However,
where fastidious vineyard management was applied wonderful wines have resulted due to low crop levels and humid condition
This wine is a blend of many small parcels of Tasmanian Pinot Noir from the Delamere Vineyard in Pipers River as well as small parcels from various locations around the state.
It is a blend of experimental techniques both in the vineyard and the winery, with elements of cold soaking, whole bunch fermentation and barrel fermentation.
All parcels were hand picked, pressed by basket press and matured in French oak
An enticing nose of briary, dark cherry fruit. Hints of leafy undergrowth and spice. Soft ripe tannins and refreshing acidity.
A delicate expression of Pinot Noir fruit with wonderful intensity, complexity and length. A truly distinctive expression of Tasmanian Pinot Noir
