Expert Reviews

Fruit from the ‘Urlar' vineyard, hand-picked and given a cold soak, then fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in 25% new French oak barriques. Dark, deep ruby red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on edge. The bouquet is very fresh and vibrantly pure with concentrated dark cherry and raspberry fruit aromas along with notes of herbs. Medium-full bodied, this is an elegant and well-proportioned wine showing concentrated dark red berry and cherry flavours with a layering of oak spice and nuances of fresh herbs. Violet floral elements and hints of raspberry liqueur show, adding interest. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, supple tannins with balanced acidity which lead to a fresh, lively finish. This is a layered and detailed Pinot Noir that will provide elegant drinking with Asian poultry, pork dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Certified organic. 17.5+/20 - Ryamond Chan, Jan 2012

Winery Profile

Economic and environmental sustainability are our driving principals

These practices are about giving life back to the soil and managing the vineyard as a balanced sustainable farming unit. This includes organic practices such as recycling through composts and liquid manures and increasing plant bio diversity through inter-row crops. Our own Highland cow herd provide the manure to drive our composting process.

Using the biodynamic farming and gardening calendar, the rhythmic influences of the sun, moon, planets and stars are recognised and worked where possible.

This commitment has been recognised and rewarded recently when we won the Hills Harvest and Gallagher Innovation Awards.

The result is beautiful, clean, hand crafted wines that have not impacted negatively on the soils as they have been created.
