Tasting Notes

A traditional Burgundy in colour with a soft crimson hue. The nose has instant sweet brambly fruit, wild berries and porcini mushrooms. The forest floor tones give way to lavender and Provinçal floral notes. From the moment the wine hits the palate, it is evident that this is a Pinot of presence. The tannins are pure silk and carry a veil of high tone berry flavours wrapped in a savoury blanket. The velvety tannins linger, giving the wine a generous length. Oak supports in the background, vital to the depth and power of the flavour. A truly iconic wine from an unforgettable vintage.

Tasting Notes

Deep, dark garnet with a burgundy hue. A plethora of notes leap from the glass– ripe red-blue fruit, boysenberry and blueberry are intertwined with the savoury complexity of black pepper and graphite. The palate is seamless and perfect to a point; voluptuous fruit greets the palate and fills the mouth. However, the exceptionally fine, graphite tannins come racing through and give the wine rarely seen persistence. Without a doubt, one of our finest releases to date.

Tasting Notes

Pale lime to pale straw. Vibrant aromas of white-fleshed peach, fresh cashew and kaffir lime. The fruit intensity is high on the palate, with power from start to finish. However, a constant thread of crunchy natural acidity persists throughout the palate, ensuring the wine is always in balance. The oak influence is subtle but frames the fruit perfectly. Our strongest release of this wine to date, owing to a fantastic vintage and the coming of age of our new plantings.

Food Match
Comte cheese, smoked salmon, fresh pasta, free-range chicken.
