The 2017 vintage was characterised by a cool start, patchy weather and what passed for summer starting in late February – i.e. an awkward year in the vineyard.
Despite these conditions our fruit came in clean and we picked between 5-10 April. Average brix a little lighter than usual at 22.7. The wine is savoury (10/5 clone) and delicious with a lighter texture than the 2016 – a delicate little number reminding you that unlike cabernet, which is bigger, Pinot Noir is complex and gentle simultaneously.
A very pretty wine with lifted aromas of nettles passionfruit, tropical fruit and citrus flower notes. Mingling with subtle flinty mineral characters, and flavours of gooseberry and melon, this wine express the Gladstone terroir. It is a crisp refreshing wine which evolves into a generous fruit-filled mouthful balanced with elegant citrus-like acidity.
