Clove, liquorice and red cherry play on the nose before opening to a generous berry-fruit mouthful with floral highlights. Full fruit flavours are balanced with spicy, charred oak characteristics that enhance and lengthen the palate. Drink now or cellar for up to five years.
Bright ripe blackberry fruit aromas with layers of savoury herbs and cherries, supple tannins, integrated oak, rich and rewarding.
Pinot Noir was left on the vines well after harvest to gain ripeness and some botrytis to produce this fascinating wine. A short period of skin contact has resulted in the tawny rose colour and provides a subtle back bone of tannin. Aromas of grapefruit marmalade with caramelised fruit lead into a rich honeyed palate with red currant and intriguing flavours of a Tokay or Madeira wine. Richly fruited but with crisp acidity this wine is well suited to drinking with blue cheese or a spiced fruit cake.

VINTAGE 2014 - The nose is full and bold with ripe, dark berry and plum fruit aromas with an array of complex notes of savoury herbs, spices and sweet, whole berry aromatic lift.
Medium-bodied, bright, luscious and sweet dark berry and plum flavours unfold to reveal spice, herb and liquorice interest. The fruit is fresh and primary, enhanced by the acidity, and is up-front and accessible. The mouthfeel is softly textured with moderate extraction and supple tannins that build, leading to a light, dry finish with red floral and herb nuances. This is a plush, bright-fruited and lively Pinot Noir with fine tannin backbone.
