Pinot Noir

Vintage description:

We experienced a normal and mild spring, which assisted the vines during the flowering period and resulted in better bunch setting. Very cold and windy conditions in December, with constant South Easterly winds, cooled water temperatures in the surrounding oceans. This resulted in one of our coolest vintages yet.

Tasting Notes

  • A complex wine, vibrant ruby red in colour, with classic elegance.
  • Exuberant cherry fruit flavours with a fragrant spiciness complimented by ripe tannins and a long finish.
