Premium fruit parcels were hand-picked and selected by our Winemaker to craft this Single Vineyard wine that is a true representation of our boutique Central Otago vineyard.
This delightful Pinot Noir has fragrant aromas of violets, dark plum, spice, leather and smokey oak char. With rich black cherry, plum, blackberry and spice, the palate is well rounded with fine tannins and a lovely long red fruit finish with nice minerality. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 10 years.
"This is magnificently fruited and immediately appealing on the nose showing dark cherry, Black Doris plum, vanilla pod, warm spice and roasted nut characters with a hint of dried herb complexity. The concentrated palate displays excellent depth and breath, offering fabulous fruit purity with seductive savoury nuances, leading to a gorgeously long complex finish."Wine Orbit (5 Stars)
"Aromas of Central Otago landscape with a rocky mineral and dried herb lift contrasted by a core of raspberry and dark plum, black cherry and myriad dried herbs. Intensely flavoured, textured and dry. Flavours of red berries and plums, toasty barrel and dried herb flavours, firm chalky tannins and plenty of acidity for texture and power."Cameron Douglas MS (95 Points, Outstanding)

Pair this wine with roast lamb or lamb rack for a classic match that never fails to impress. The delicacy of this pinot noir results in an excellent match with stronger fish such as salmon and tuna. The bright powerful berry fruit nature also pairs well with game dishes including duck, rabbit and quail.
