94 pts James Suckling
The savoriness on this pinot is obvious from the nose, sporting fresh roses, freshly squeezed cranberries, pumice and fresh herbs. The palate is very tight, linear and buttressed by firm and study tannins. It is also freshened up by an unmistakable corridor of acidity, which snaps through to a medium-chewy finish. Drink in 2020. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

Several clones of Pinot Noir from many blocks on our Estate vineyard were picked over a three week period. All batches were destemmed and were wild fermented in small open top fermenters. Ferments were hand plunged up to 5 times a day and then pressed to oak upon dryness. The wine underwent MLF in barrel and was then racked back to barrel for further maturation. 25% new French oak was used (the remainder 1 -4 year old barrels) and the wine was matured in these barrels for 10 months.
Low yields resulted in great fruit concentration for the 2017 Pinot Noir. This wine has beautiful dark cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit characters with some liquorice and spice characters adding complexity. The palate has fine silky tannins great mid palate richness and well-balanced acidity.
