Overview

"A follow-up to the trophy-winning 2010, this is stunning (and I like the new labels, too). In addition to the great fruit, this is smooth, stylish, savoury, slinky and very sexy" - Winsor Dobbin

A difficult vintage that has rewarded with a most delightfully perfumed and ethereal wine. We try our hardest to do as little as possible in the winery with our pinot noir fruit as we spend almost all of our efforts in the vineyard. Shoot thinning, bunch thinning and hand picking all ensure that we have low cropped, intensely flavoured fruit. We then spent nearly two days picking the six tonnes of fruit, carefully inspecting each and every bunch to ensure only perfect bunches were selected. All we do in the winery is not muck it up!

Expert Reviews

Bright, clear crimson-purple; a fragrant red and black cherry bouquet, with more of the same on the elegantly structured and poised palate; while it will be best enjoyed over the next 3-4 years, it needs no excuses. A great achievement for the vintage. Rating 93 - Drink by 2015 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

The blend is only drawn from the fruit grown on the slope of our front pinot block, where the soil is shallow and gravelly and the north-west aspect creates a warm site in a cool region.

Aroma/Palate

As a result, there is tremendous richness and generous fruit flavours that seemlessly marry to supple and refined tannins. Delicious now, with careful cellaring, the flavours will gain complexity and the palate will soften.

Food Matching

If you can't wait that long, we love to match the pinot with duck or pork, where the textures and flavours are some well suited.
