2019 Silkwood ‘The Bowman’ Pinot Noir

6 bottles

In stock.

Concentrated flavours of black cherry and Satsuma plum. A fine tannin structure and balanced acidity leading to a lingering complex finish. 
This wine is a blend of three different Pinot Noir clones; 40% MV6, 30% 777, 10% D5V12. Each Clone has a distinctive contribution to the final wine; MV6 gives palate weight and 777 bring bright berry fruit flavours, and whilst D5V12 bring freshness and structure. 

Each Clone were harvested separately and fermented separately with an average of 10% whole bunch. All parcels were cold-soaked for 6 days before allowing wild fermentation to take place then followed by an inoculated yeast culture. The wine was pressed to 40% new and 60% older French Oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation. Once oak integration was achieved, the wine was blended and filtered before bottling.

93 pts - Andrew Graham (Australian Wine Review)

This Silkwood Estate The Bowman Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 is easily the best Silkwood Pinot yet - a premium single vineyard Great Southern Pinot of some appeal. The bacon bits and dry-reddishness is gone, now replaced with sappy red fruits, a silken palate, and finessed tannins. It still remains a little Pemberton mint, and hardly delicate, but this feels bright, vibrant and well balanced, in a ripe, red-fruited form with sturdy, almost furry tannins. A good mouthful and long too. Hello!

93 Pts - Angus Hughson (Winepilot)

Crafting classy pinot noir can be hard work with this variety particularly fussy about where and how it is grown. The key is a cool climate which in Western Australia means Great Southern. Here the nearby Southern Ocean keeps the heat at bay, even in the middle of Summer. It also helps to create some super-savoury pinot noirs. This example is mid cherry red in colour with layers of earthy aromas – autumn leaves, spice and soil under which sits sweet red cherry and toasty oak. It is followed by an acid driven palate – green herb and stalky flavours over red fruits with a slight meaty edge. It’s complex for sure and suits early drinking.
