Outstanding depth of colour for Pinot Noir displaying an opaque dark red black core with a dark red purple hue. The powerfully scented nose is dominated by ripe dark to black cherry and dark plum aromas laced with anise over toasty cedar, light earth and spice. Medium bodied this is a rich, concentrated Pinot that’s filled with dark and black cherry flavours, dark plums and anise underpinned by scorched earth and spicy cedar. Sturdy but fine grained tannins provide some underlying muscle to the fruit. Excellent power with a long conclusion of dark and black fruits, anise, scorched earth and spicy cedar. A big rich Pinot packed with powerful black fruits.

Impressive red-cherry aromas precede great depth and structured, handy tannins that pull real flavors out of the wine and coat the palate. This holds fresh and rich darker cherries and red plums long into the finish. Regal pinot with soul and swagger. Drink now to 2025.

Rich, concentrated pinot noir with ripe plum, black cherry, liquorice, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours. A powerful wine that's a pleasure to taste now but has the potential to develop well in bottle. Drink 2017 to 2025.
