A very low yielding vintage and wonderfully warm early summer has delivered a structured, deeply sumptuous, velvet-textured Pinot Noir. This is a serious, cellar worthy Pinot. Opened within the next couple of years, expect to savour the rich cherry stone and delicately spiced ripe plum characters, with fine tannins running evenly across the entire palate. Well cellared for 5 or 6 years at least, patience will reward with a wine full of complexity and intrigue; layer upon layer of gamey, seductively feral notes finely woven with the still distinctive, but now maturing fruit flavours. Sweet spice and vanilla oak, recognisable as separate components when the wine is young, merge to become fully integrated, our aim to achieve perfect harmony within a seamless whole.
