Bottle/Case

Aroma

Plum, five-spice, and truffles.

Palate

Deep-set red fruit flavours are bound by the firm structure. Medium weight in the mid palate finishes chalky and firm.

Cellaring

Over time the vibrant fruit spice at bottling should transform to more of the earthy aromas typical of Pinot Noir. Structurally the wine should soften over time to provide great complexity and interest over a 5-10 year cellaring period.

Winemaking

Handpicked in the cool of morning, the grapes naturally fermented and were hand plunged in open vats over several weeks. A portion of the bunches were left as whole bunches. After draining to barrels for 19 months, the wine was blended before bottling 24 months after harvest.

Vintage

2016 was excellent. Dry conditions without excessive heat meant the pinot noir had small crops with great concentration. Acid retention was very good with flavour, tannin and sugar maturities well balanced for near perfect harvest conditions.

Alcohol

12.5%
