CHATTO - 2021 PINOT'S
A complex blend of no less than five clones (114, 115, MV6, D5V12, G5V15) and four vineyard sites in the north, south and east of Tasmania.
The name Lutruwita is the Palawa Kani name for our island state.
"Our 2021 Lutruwita blend comes from one vineyard on the West Tamar (Glengarry), one from Pipers River (Bird), one from the Coal River (Brinktop), and one from the East Coast (Maclean Bay). A celebration of what is so good about Tasmanian Pinot: Bright red & black fruits, all the florals, intensity yet elegance, and great length and purity." - Jim Chatto
Planted by Tasmanian pioneer Dr Andrew Pirie in 1998, Bird vineyard is in the Pipers River region, northeast of Tasmania.
"Thanks to the team's generosity at Pipers Brook, we are lucky to get a lovely parcel of clone 114 Pinot from the Bird Vineyard. Red fruit with spicey aromatics. Bird is the most elegant and ethereal of our lineup — the ‘Gateway Pinot’ as we fondly call it." - Jim Chatto
A combination of four clones (115, G5V15, D5V12, 8104).
"Planted in 2007 and located about 750m (as the crow flies) from our own Isle Vineyard. Meticulously and lovingly grown our neighbour by Max Kitchell, Seven Inch has been part of the Chatto stable since 2014. We bottled the first stand-alone wine from this excellent site in 2018." - Jim Chatto
