Stefano Lubiana Primavera Pinot Noir 2018 CONFIRM 2018 VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Derwent Tasmania
Stefano Lubiana believes that every sip of wine should tell you a story, like a movie or good book. It should have a beginning, a middle and an end, one that builds gradually to sustain a high level of satisfaction and enjoyment. Truly great vineyards manage to tell a compelling story almost every year. Lubiana experiments with wild or cultured yeasts and uses whole bunch fermentation where appropriate to create remarkable wines. Primavera gets better every year, ten months in oak has trimmed and shaped it nicely, go pink with lamb or rare tuna.

Located in the Granton region on the river Derwent, Stefano Lubiana's Pinot Noir site consists of fine silty/ gravelly loam soil types. With every successive vintage of Primavera, Lubiana has worked hard to improve the structure and flavour of the wine. Primavera has evolved into a close sibling of the estate's flagship Pinot Noir, made possible through better vineyard management, a reduction in cropping levels plus a delay in release dates, which has allowed the wine to develop more fully in French oak barriques under the Lubiano cellars. All these improvements have been achieved without compromising the balance and drinkability of a forward drinking, limited production Pinot Noir in light Beaujolais styling.
Vibrant crimson red, purple hues. Engaging aromas of red fruits and a touch of undergrowth, the story that follows tells a tale of juicy ripe fruit, fine grained tannins and lingering natural acidity. Tthe palate shows a neat balance of sweet fruit and ripe savoury tannins. Good Pinot Noir is never a blockbuster, Primavera is always made to be enjoyed in its first flush of youth. Stefano recommends sharing over lunch with smoked meats, pancetta quails or fresh tuna.
