Red cherries, plum blossom and cinnamon.
An elegant palate of super fine tannin, pristine natural acidity and pure red fruit character. Complex nuances of oak spice, dried thyme and grapefruit dot the intricate textural cavalcade, culminating in a mineral finish.
A warm and dry growing season with timeous top ups of rain has led to whites of unprecedented purity balanced with formidable power, and reds boasting intense red and blue fruits with striking yet supple tannin and structure.
The Pinot Noir fruit is hand-picked, chilled overnight and whole cluster pressed to extract only the slightest amount colour and only the purest fragrances and textures from the skins. The juice is cold settled prior to fermentation at low temperatures in barrel. Our aim is to preserve freshness and capture aromatics, while developing texture and complexity in oak. When fermentation was complete, the wine was then racked off of its lees to stainless steel before stabilising and bottling in July of the vintage.
Up to 2 years, however we enjoy it for freshness now.
Pale pink with white flecks.
