Pinot Noir is my favourite red wine but therefore I am very fussy when it comes to how good this is and although it has that raspberry warmth through and through, it just lacks that certain refinement to be great. Perhaps just a little too much on the fruit and not enough complexity to make it memorable.

Winemaker's Notes:

Selected Pinot Noir clones were individually hand harvested, destemmed and cold soaked for a period of up to ten days. Specific parcels of wine were allowed to ferment naturally while others were inoculated with selected yeast strains. The cap was hand plunged four times daily to ensure soft extraction of the fruit. To intensify the flavour, colour and mouthfeel the fermentation temperatures were allowed to reach 32 Degrees Celsius. The wines were pressed to French barriques and rested over winter until spring when malolactic fermentation occurred. The wines again rested in oak until February when they were blended

Tasting Notes:

A perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, plums and spice notes. Fruit driven and elegant, with long layers of flavour, full-bodied and well-balanced with fine, grainy tannins. This wine is concentrated and rich – an elegant Pinot Noir with finesse and complexity.
