About the wine

Tasting notes

Blushing light ruby with a nose that’s deeply floral with a concentration of red fruits, coloured by hints of lemon pith, gentle herbals, roasted fig leaf, mace, Dorrigo pepper and clove. The palate is pure, balanced and charming with ultra fine tannins, lovely acidity and ribbons of red berries, blackberry and cherry that have depth, clarity and freshness. There’s a creaminess of texture that is addictive and it holds throughout a long and harmonious tail. A lovely Pinot Noir.

Expert review

A fine follow-up to the 2018, with the same lilting herbal, undergrowth attraction that is very much of its cool-climate origins. Finely balanced with redcurrant, pomegranate and cherry-musk aromas and sinewy and deceptively strong palate, with a firm anchor of tannins.
