The deeply coloured Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2020 bursts with power and concentration. Generous black cherries, spice and savoury notes are underpinned with fine tannins and beautiful weight, simply captivating.

In exceptional years we carefully select wines for our Family Reserve label. We feel they just have that extra dimension and deserve a black label.



94/100 Bob Campbell MW,

A very favourable vintage has produced this riper-than-usual pinot noir while maintaining good acidity.

A more concentrated version of the regular pinot noir with cassis, black cherry, Black Doris plum, wood smoke and a suggestion of baked-earth character. A weighty wine with a backbone of fine, peppery tannins. Should develop well with bottle age.
