A dark, complex wine with hints of plums, dark berries and dark chocolate, a mineral undertone and underlying savoury complexity. Its texture is silky but it is tightly structured with a lovely long aftertaste. An elegant young wine that will soften and harmonise further with another few months’ bottle age.
A boomer this year, tastes of sweet ripe fruit and with plenty of spine, of course ideal for the long haul but a little air-time makes a big difference already. Open, pour, wait. Careful vineyard selection and gutsy yet true-to-sit pinot characters carry this wine into the excellence class.
