A blend of three great Pinot Noir clones: 777, MV6 and D5V12, sourced from varying elevations and aspects on the vineyard.
A portion was fermented on indigenous yeast with some whole bunches included in the ferment. It was then matured for 12 months in French Oak Barriques.
A lovely nose of plum and cherry with spice and floral notes. The palate is creamy and generous with vibrant cherry, strawberry and savoury notes. The wine is wonderfully textural with silky, polished tannins on the long finish.
REVIEWS: Vintage 2018
“..Excellent colour, deep and clear; all the plum and cherry all-sorts you could wish for, discretely supplied by fine tannins and oak.” James Halliday
“.. Full of black cherries, spice, along with hints of sweet vanilla and some smokiness adds to the complexity of the nose. The palate follows through with soft tannins, integrated sweet fruit and well-balanced acidity. Vibrant in colour and vibrant in texture and flavour.” – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix
“Bright and youthfully charming, the wine offers lifted aromas of sweet cherry, plum, floral and mixed spice on the nose, leading to a juicy palate that is beautifully rounded and flowing. Elegant and soothing with a lovely silky finish.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
