Winemaking and Tasting Notes:
   
The 2014 Paul Wallace Brave Heart Pinot Noir is our second Vintage. The name is a tribute to William Wallace, a man of great principle and heart, who we would like to believe is one of our ancestors. It is also a play on the Pinot Noir cultivarís nickname Ė the Heart Break grape. Fortunately our 2014 Pinot Noir offering has once again captured our heart and is anything but a disappointment. Production was very limited - only 6 barrels / 1234 liters of this vintage were vinified.
 
Pristine grapes (Clone PN115, Guyot pruned) selected from three different slopes on our farm Wallovale Vineyards, were vinified with much love and gentle attention by Gavin Patterson. The wine was bottled on 6th February 2015.
 
The Brave Heart Pinot Noir proudly introduces itself with a bright garnet colour enticing you to explore it further. Fresh primary fruits, wafts of red cherries, strawberries and mulberries on the nose follow through onto a fruit driven palate. The purity of fruit is embellished by subtle oaking (17% new wood, 50% second fill, 33% third and fourth fill) and spicy undertones typical of the Elgin region.
 
Serve the Brave Heart with plum-glazed duck, roast turkey or a beautiful bit of salmon. It is recommended that in our hot summer months you serve this wine ever so lightly chilled.
