2016 PINOT NOIR

Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged. The nose has softly concentrated and deep aromas of ripe dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit entwined with dark herbs and subtle whole bunch stalk suggestions, unfolding dark-red floral perfumes. The nose is firmly packed, but exudes richness. Medium-bodied, the palate has stylishly rich and lusciously sweet flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruits along with subtle notes of fresh herbs, dark-red florals with nuances of whole bunch stalk elements. The fruit sweetness forms a positive core which is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction with soft acidity lending freshness, enhancing the fruit richness. The wine carries to a long, soft finish. This is a stylishly rich and sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with dark-red cherry and berry fruit with subtle herb and floral notes and fine tannin structure.

2018 SAUVIGNON BLANC

Brilliant pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is fresh with softly full aromas of white and green stonefruits, piquant fresh herbs, some gooseberry notes and subtle complexing mouthwatering minerally lees elements. This is elegantly presented and has good intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rich and succulent core of green stonefruits and gooseberries with fresh herb notes and subtle flinty, minerally lees detail. The palate sweetness is balanced by fine, fresh acidity and the flavours flow along with an elegantly concentrated core with very good linearity and thirst-quenching crispness to a long, lingering finish of stonefruits, herbs and minerals. This is an elegantly rich and succulent Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit, herb and mouthwatering mineral flavours and a finely concentrated core with crisp acidity.
