Even garnet-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. This has an elegantly proportioned nose with a firm, but refined core of dark-red berry fruits with nuances of black fruits and subtle notes of dark herbs, unfolding subtle red floral fragrances and a little oak. Medium-bodied, the palate features sweetly rich and lush dark-red berry fruit flavours entwined with subtle dark herb elements, showing with good depth and balanced presence. The fruit is supported by elegant, fine-grained tannins lending well-proportioned structure and textured, along with fresh acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant, and the wine flows with good energy and tension to a lingering finish. The is a well-balanced and proportioned, harmoniously presented Pinot Noir with sweet dark-red berry fruit and fine structure and vitality. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. 54% clone 114 and 23% each clones 667 and 4, indigenous yeast fermented with 15% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 24 days on skins the wine aged 16 months in 24% new 300 L French oak barrels. 18.5/20 Feb 2018 RRP $30.00
