Description

The 2018 Pinot Noir has a silky and lush texture fruit power, is concentrated yet finely balanced with fine tannins throughout and long in flavour. A classic vintage for us.

Vinified using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts and 11 months in 15% new French oak. Racked, blended and settled in tank for a further 6 months. Fermentation was carried out using de-stemmed fruit including the addition of 25% whole bunches, plus several tanks of 100% wholebunch fruit fermentation.

Perfumed with lovely aromatics, there is a range of complexed fruit notes of darker berry fruit, some spice, savoury tones and dried herbs. 

Organically grown, made and certified, a blend of our best vineyard parcels.

Glossy, lighter expression, exceptionally silky, burr of fine tannin, amaro-leaning flavours with just ripe cherry and faint truffley-mushroomy characters. Excellent characters. Excellent. And so very composed, restrained and long. Fine wine paradigm markers all here. 94 Points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
