Praxis Pinot Noir 2016

Drinking Guide


Drink 2017-2022



This is the counterpart of our robust Muse. A warm vintage has produced ripe flavours. Blood plums, cherries, ripe blue berries, rose petals, black slate and a whiff of the vineyard create a complex bouquet. It’s reminiscent of a valley green dotted with wildflowers and laden fruit trees at the peak of summer and is imminently drinkable. The palate is bright and easy, to begin and end, touched lightly by texture and dusty tannins. It’ll be gone before you know it. Drink now.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

The combination of various batches of fruit from St. Matthias defines our resulting wine style. Essentially a softer and silkier tannin with less time in oak coupled with a more fruit forward style but tempered with some wild yeast complexity. This vintage is no different and again I harvested fruit slightly lower in ripeness to try to avoid higher alcohol content. As with last year I have also allowed a very slightly higher amount of new wood (from 16% to now 20%) to try to hold the fruit but provide slightly richer oak character. I’ve had a number of older vintages that have matured very well, however I continue to think this wine is best suited to enjoy within two years.
