4.5 stars The Wine Writer- Angie Atkinson
The nose of bright cherries, spice and a hint of smoky oak. The palate is warm and inviting showing luscious red berry flavours, velvety texture and an elegant fresh finish.
The grapes used to make this wine were carefully selected from vineyard blocks with diverse terroir: alluvial river flats, limestone and clay loam. 2018 was one of the warmest seasons of the last 10 years and produced beautiful, healthy Pinot bunches with great flavour concentration. Extensive crop and canopy management at each vineyard was undertaken to ensure grapes attained full maturation.
We allowed the natural process of wild fermentation to take the grapes through to young wine before a gentle pressing to French oak barrels for 10 months ageing. The natural softening that takes place in barrel brings a soft and approachable texture to the wine. We bottled the wine on our estate with no fining.
