Cool, dry start to season had us waiting in anticipation and we were not disappointed. A classic cool, long ripening vintage providing intense fruit flavours and lingering concentration. 2012 displays focus, richness and a youthfulness not seen since 2005.
- VIC - Yarra Valley
The wine was fermented in/ finished its primary fermentation in French barriques, part new, part used. Bright, but light, purple- crimson; it has a harmonious palate of supple red cherry and plum fruit, oak and tannins expertly sewn into and onto the fruit. Rating 93 - Drink by 2020, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).
Winery Tasting Notes
Classic Pinot Noir, red/ black cherry complimented with brooding earthy undertones. Subtle savoury spice.
Hints of violets and lavender. Rich black cherry spice surrounded by vanillin oak. Lovely middle palate concentration supported by fine velvet like tannins.
