Le Coup translates as “to strike” and represents Alana Estate’s challenge to the great wines of Burgundy. Only produced in exceptional vintages from a selection of the best barrels, it is Alana Estate’s ultimate expression of Pinot Noir. Total production for the 2006 Le Coup was limited to only 900 bottles.

The finest expression of Pinot Noir from Alana and a serious threat to Burgundy.

Superb top note of violet, followed by layers of ripe strawberry and spice. The powerhouse rolls out into a serious power wave. This is the essence of great Pinot Noir – power and elegance overlaid with velvet smooth tannins. Totally mouthfilling with strong flavours of dark cherry, anise and spice, overlaid with strong black pepper, spice and cherry aftertaste.
