Pinot Noir is known to be a fickle and difficult grape, in both growing and winemaking. However the variety is well-suited to the cool slopes and ancient soils of the Adelaide Hills. This Classic Pinot Noir is crafted to be supple and approachable in its youth, but with real varietal character and serious structure.

Lifted red berry fruit aromas of raspberries and cherries with subtle spice and herbaceous notes.
Summer fruit flavours extend onto the palate complemented by subtle spice notes from the oak.The mid weight palate is fresh and bright with a firm structure and long, savoury finish.
