Marimar Torres - Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir 2006 - Intense Nose 6x 75cl Bottles
75cl Bottles £32.62 Available 15th Mar 2016
Description: This vintage displays deep, intense nose of black cherry and raspberry, a note of faded roses, and spicy sandalwood, clove and cinnamon in the background.
On the palate it is silky and chewy, with great structure, bright acidity, and firm but supple tannins that promise a long life.
The grapes were harvested September 6 -26. After minimal crushing, they fermented in small stainless steel tanks, with no whole clusters. The wine was aged in premium French oak barrels, 33% new, coopered by Remond, Rousseau, Marchive and Marsannay, all from the forest of Bertranges. It was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, in August 2009.
The vineyard's 20 acres of Pinot Noir are planted with three different clones. The blend of clones in this vintage is 70% Pommard and 30% Dijon 115.
