Description

Aroma: Restrained cherry, sundried tomato and raspberry.
Palate: Youthful and focused, with a sweet fruited front palate. A long, very fine tannin structure that combines suppleness with power.
Cellaring: Always a little restrained in its youth, this wine should unfold past 2020 to show its more soft, generous side. Confidently cellar through to 2026.

Winemaking

Handpicked in the cool of morning, the grapes naturally fermented and were hand plunged in open vats over several weeks. A portion of the bunches were left as whole bunches. After draining to barrels for 18 months, barrels were selected and blended for further ageing, then blended before bottling 24 months after harvest

Vineyard

2016 was excellent for Pinot Noir. Dry conditions without excessive heat meant the Pinot Noir had small crops with great concentration
