Regular price $29.00

Tasting Notes

Red, pale hue. The nose is bright and fresh with cherry and plum notes, smoky toast and dried herbs. The palate is dense with red fruits and cherry notes. Subtle oak gives weight to the mid-palate and the wine finishes with soft tannins.

92 Points | "Youthfully charming and beautifully fragrant, showing sweet plum, dark cherry, thyme, warm spice and floral aromas on the nose. It's equally appealing on the palate with elegant weight and silky mouthfeel, well supported by fine polished tannins, finishing long and juicy. At its best now to 2025." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

90 Points | "A youthful and fruity bouquet with aromas of cherry and yellow plum, some floral highlights and stony dried herb layers. Equally fruity on the palate with flavours of red berries and plum, some dried herb and vanilla toasty baking spices of wood. Balanced and well made, some, youthful, dry and ready. best drinking from 2021 through 2023." - Cameron Douglas MS

89 Points | "A well-made pinot noir from a favourable vintage. Supple, easy-drinking wine with cherry, berry, fresh herb and subtle spicy flavours. Offers value at this price." - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review

Winemaker's Notes

60% contract fruit from Cottier vineyard, the remainder is sourced from Gladstone Vineyard. Blocks and parcels were fermented separately in 1 and 2 tonne fermenters, pressed to barrel and completed natural malo. Sulphured in Feb 2020, and blended at the end of March.
