Review Date : 23-Jun-2020
Deep, even, medium dark-red with lightness and a slight brick-red hue. The nose is elegant with underlying power; red fruit spectrum, fresh and cooked; melded with medicinal herbs, oak spices and savoury element. Medium-bodied, red cherries and cooked plums entwined with an amalgam of medicinal herbs and spices, showing strength and power with freshness. There is an alcohol power carries flavours and intensity, emphasized the spices component; supported by a fine-textured tannin extraction, leaves a silky tannin mouthfeel with spices. This is a powerful and developing Pinot Noir with fresh and cooked red fruit, medicinal herbs and spices on a fine texture palate with warming alcohol. Match with venison and lamb over the next 3-4 years. BioGro organic certified. Handpicked, each clone fermented separately in traditionally oak cuves to 14.% alc and cold-soaked. Aged in French oak barriques, 20% new oak. 18.5/20 pts June 2020 RRP $45
