Pinot Noir 2016
Layered flavours of red cherry, spice and plum are superbly balanced with French oak, giving length to the finish.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine is a light to medium garnet with a bright and vibrant clarity.
The wine has lifted cherry, plum and strawberry notes with restrained spice and cedar characters.
The wine is medium-bodied with flavours of ripe cherry along with subtle savoury characters. The palate has a sublimely soft and silky structure with varietal strawberry caressing the long and gentle finish. Subtle oak characters of cinnamon and cedar add to the overall complexity of this fruit-driven wine.
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2020.

Lifted aromas of red berry fruit, cherry and savory herb set the table for a smorgasbord of palate-coating flavour. Racy passion fruit and tangy red currant interweave with juicy black cherry and ripe raspberry berry notes providing a yin and yang / sweet and tang experience thatÆs balanced and beautiful. ItÆs medium-weight and well textured with a dry, mouth-watering finish that lingersùyou shouldnÆt, the price-quality balance tips well in your favour.
