SKU: N/A Category:

Colour

Deep, medium ruby, lighter around the edges.

Aroma

Open and expressive on the nose, with a summery array of cherry, mirabelle plum and sage, with complex notes of new car leather, butcher’s block and rose petal.

Ageing Potential

The complexity and concentration will complement slow-cooked beef dishes like ragus, casseroles and braised beef; otherwise perfect with normal Pinot Noir staples like Peking duck and roast pork. Drinking beautifully now, this excellent 2019 will drink at its best until 2025.

Palate

Medium bodied, silky and supple in the mouth, fine grained tannins frame the plump cherry fruit, woody and floral herbal notes mingle with the smoky French oak flavours to produce memorable complexity. A complete and harmonious vintage on release at 2 years old, the balance of this 2019 is already immaculate and the finish long and detailed.

Winemaking

Crafted from Pinot Noir , 50% from our East Base Vineyard, 37% from our Clouston Vineyard and the balance from Hua Nui, Pinnacles, Winery and Martins Vineyards. Fermented with 5% whole clusters and the majority wild yeasts, before 10months ageing in French Oak, of which 25% new
