From the winemaker…
Lifted aromatics of wild raspberry and blackberry, while cinnamon, nutmeg spice and an earthiness jump from the glass. The palate is spicy, with great length and beautifully delicate tannins.
This is an unfined pure expression of our vineyard’s best Pinot Noir vines. Blended together to create a distinctive, complete and satisfying wine.
Serve at 16-18 degrees Celsius
The grapes were destemmed, then gently fermented and macerated in up to 2.2T lots for at least 20 to 25 days. The fermenters were drained and pressed to French oak barriques, with topping occurring every week with the wines on full ferment yeast lees. The barrels were selected and
combined for a rest period. A light filtration before bottling ensures the stability of the wine.
Harvest date: 16th to 27th March, 2018
Appealing, elegant pinot noir with red fruits, spice, wood-smoke, fresh herbs and subtle floral flavours. A high-energy wine with a backbone of bright, fresh acidity and fine, peppery tannins. 94 pts Bob Campbell MW
