2019 Estate Pinot Noir

Regular price $39.00

Tasting Notes

Red, purple hue. The nose has fragrant characters of blackberry and dark cherry with floral undertones. Beautifully balanced by savoury oak notes, and sage characters. The palate is refined and tight, with real texture. Fruits form early but the wine is carried by a lovely savoury tone and whole bunch structure and tannins.

94 Points | "Really lovely bouquet, captivating, varietal and youthful with aromas of fresh cherry and dark plum, a savoury complexity with dried herb and silty mineral soil layers. Some fine toasty oak and moments of red flowers. On the palate - lots of texture and energy, a core of fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Firm coarse silk tannins and medium+ acidity along with a great fruit profile makes for a delicious wine, ready from drinking from 2022 through 2028." - Cameron Douglas MS

93 Points | "Expressing finesse and complexity with ripe plum, floral, clove and smoked game nuances, it’s supple and finely textured offering velvety texture and plump mouthfeel backed by polished tannins. Beautifully crafted and expressed. At its best now to 2027. " - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

93 Points | "An attractive mix of fruit and spice with plum, dark cherry, anise and a smattering of freshly chopped herbs supported by fine, ripe tannins. An appealing fruit-bomb style and a real crowd-pleaser. Offers value at this price." - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
