Splendid depth of aroma and flavour is achieved from superb fruit, cool to moderate fermentation, fine grained French oak and minimal intervention. A soft expressive wine offering tiers of bright fruit, delightful fragrance and soft textural tannins. It will provide serious drinking pleasure immediately and well into the early 2020’s.
115 clone, hand-picked, destemmed, cool fermented with a mix of wild and cultured yeast, matured for 10 months in French oak (25% new). Bright purple-crimson hue; the expressive bouquet has scents of red flowers, spices and red berries, the elegant palate with convincing length despite its airy delicacy. A pinot for pinot devotees.” – Halliday Wine Companion ’18
