Dark, deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with a core of savoury aromatic dark-red berry fruits harmoniously entwined with sweet dark and dried herbs, and a subtle layering of undergrowth and game-like complexities. The nose has depth and density unfoldinmg fragrant floral lift with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and sweetly vibranr savoury dark-red fruit flavours along with red florals entwined with soft game, undergrowth and dried herb elements. The flavours are concentrated with good depth and intensity, and underlined by fine, grainy tannin structure providing a refined grip. The acidity is balanced and integrated. The wine flows with energy and vitality, carrying to a long, elegantly concentrated finish with complexing savoury detail. This is a well-concentrated and deeply flavoured Pinot Noir with complex savoury flavours of dark-red berry fruits, dried herbs, undergrowth and hints of game on a fine-structured palate. Serve with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6-7+ years. Predominantly clones 5, 667. 6 and 777 with 115, indigenous yeast fermented with 26.5% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak.

Very classy Pinot Noir with cherry, berry, floral, sappy wet stone, mineral and spicy oak flavours. Bright, fresh wine with purity and impressive underlying power. A supple, elegant wine that promises to age well.
