- ABV 13.5%
- Closure: Stelvin
A charming Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir garnished with terrific power and delicious ripe red fruits, making it one of the best value Pinots on the market.
Semi translucent bright dark red colour with black tinged edges and a crimson red hue. Fragrant aromatics of violets , ripe red to dark cherries and strawberries blossom from the glass with some meatiness, forest floor and spice ensuing. Light with a supple feel, delicious flavours of spicy ripe dark cherries and strawberries deliver a terrific power wave. Also chiming in are nuances of forest floor, subtle vanilla and notions of dried herbs. Vibrant, fresh finish with perfectly integrated, finely grained tannins. Long spicy red and dark cherry, strawberry, forest floor, light vanilla and dried herb aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Full colour. The dagger has only just been drawn as at September '17, but will underwrite the development of a wine that has much to offer. It has considerable depth and complexity to its plum and dark cherry fruit. A foresty/earthy subtext adds another dimension. Drink by 2025.
Drink by 2025.

Just when I said that 2017 isn’t as good as it’s made out to be – this pops up. Amazing that it’s on the streets already.
This is a beauty. Textural, powerful, varietal and brilliant to drink. Dark cherries and plums, a tanginess, spice and peppercorn notes. It races about, delivering pleasure as it goes. Tannin is in emery board territory. Take the wine, the price, combine the two, and clearly this is right up there as one of the best value pinots of the year. Drink 2017-2023.
