Review Date : 11-Sep-2016
Even ruby-red colour with garnet hues on the rim. The bouquet is elegantly proportioned and finely presented with aromas of savoury red berry fruits along with lifted notes of red florals, herbs and earth, unfolding spice and cedary oak nuances. The aromatics are complex and harmoniously interwoven. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a finely concentrated core and line with rich, succulent, savoury red fruits harmoniously melded with subtle notes of herbs, earth, spice and cedar. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with fine-grained underlying tannins and integrated acidity lending gentle energy and drive, The wine has sweetness and richness which carries to a long, lingering, harmonious, savoury finish. This is an elegant, harmonious, savoury layered Pinot Noir with a complex amalgam of red fruits, herbs, earth, spices and cedar on a smooth, fine-grained palate. Match with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 4+ years. Clones 777, 113, 114, 115, Abel, 10/5 and small amounts of 667 and Mariafeld, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in predominantly seasoned oak, with a low proportion of new, bottled unfined and unfiltered. 800 dozen made. 17.5+/20 Sep 2016 RRP $45.00
