Tasting Notes:

Soft and charming, our Pinot Noir 2017 impresses with lifted aromas of wild black cherries and spice, a silken texture and a savoury, earthy finish.

Reviews:

4 Stars Michael Cooper
The graceful, estate-grown 2017 Pinot Noir is full-coloured, mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with very good depth of plummy, slightly spicy flavours, showing considerable complexity, gentle tannins, and lots of drink-young appeal.

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
