Review Date : 03-Feb-2017
Even garnet-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The bouquet is very elegant and refined with fragrant red fruits along with spices and spicy oak, red florals and liquorice notes. A subtle lift adds to the aromatics, the and nose shows a fine core with fruit freshness and vibrancy. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and lively aromatic red berry fruit flavours entwined with red florals, liquorice, and a layering of spicy oak. The mouthfeel has good vitality and energy with fine-grained background tannin structure and fresh, balanced acidity. The possesses linearity and drive, and carries to a sustained finish of red fruits and spices. This is a vibrant Pinot Noir with soft red berry fruit and floral flavours, spicy oak and fine structure. Match with pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 6+ years. A barrel selection wine. An equal blend of clones 667, 777 and Abel from the ‘Ma Maison’ vineyard fully destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 9-10 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 822 bottles made. 18.5-/20 Feb 2017 RRP $108.00
