Another superb Pinot Noir from legendary maker Tim Knappstein, who is a master with this fickle variety. This is a reserve-grade wine made from the best parcels of fruit. Pale ruby. Redcurrant, Campari spice, liquorice and savoury oak. Firm yet seamless, with a spicy mix of spicy red fruit, kitchen spice and liquorice, stalky tannin grip and lovely balance of oak and acidity.

Sam Kim

Complex, seductive and sensual, this gorgeous pinot shows dark cherry, sweet plum, anise, olive and roasted nut aromas on the nose with a touch of earthy mushroom. The palate displays beautifully rounded mouthfeel together with refined texture and silky tannins, finishing magnificently long and expansive. At its best: now to 2028.

(2017 vintage) Don't baulk at the light colour, it's healthy. The bouquet is perfumed, and the palate has plenty of complexity and varietal expression, a whole bunch component in the ferment providing savoury/foresty notes, but not obliterating the cherry and pomegranate fruit flavours.
