Tasting Notes

From our Dakins Road Vineyard, this intensely layered Pinot Noir exudes a harmonious balance between power and elegance. The luscious aromas of red and black bramble berries are lifted by streaks of pretty florals that are complemented by a savoury minerality. A robust and structured palate finishes with a vibrant, distinguished acidity coupled with silky smooth chocolatey tannins.

5-Stars | "Finely scented, the debut 2018 vintage was matured for a year in French oak casks (35% new). Bright ruby, it is a savoury, youthful, well-structured red, with cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a long life ahead. Best drinking 2021+" - Michael Cooper

92 Points | "Attractive bouquet and quite complex. Aromas of sweet oak, roses, vanilla and red fruits of ripe cherry and plum, vanilla and toasty wood spices. Equally as attractive on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose - equally complex and layered on the palate with firm chalky tannins, medium+ acidity and a savoury lengthy finish. Balanced and well made with a lengthy finish. A lovely wine to enjoy from today and through 2025." - Cameron Douglas MS

Winemaker's Notes

Mix of wild and innoculated ferments, however, all ferments were started wild. 37% of this wine is whole-bunch, and maturation for 14 months in barrel.
