Description

The Reserve Pinot Noir is sourced purely from our five preferred clones. The fruit is de-stemmed via a small, customised, gentle de-stemmer that keeps as many whole berries as possible. After ferment, the fruit is then basket pressed, and the wine is made without any additions until bottling. Some whole bunches are included, and the percentage varies according to the style of the vintage. The Pinot is then matured in a combination of old and new French barriques prior to bottling.

Nose

Rich with dark cherries, raspberries and ripe tomatoes. Rose perfume notes, as well as hints of rosemary, truffles and charred oak.

Mouth

Brimming with juicy red and blue fruits, along with caraway seeds and truffle oil. The fruit opulence is framed by length-defining tannins, with briary and stalky notes. Under these layers are also cinnamon, cloves and cigar-box. The texture is plush and extraordinarily generous with a very fine, chewy finish.

Professional Reviews

"Bright, deepish red/purple colour. A more reserved, less fragrant bouquet than the Estate model – dark cherries, whole-bunch effect not apparent. It’s medium to full-bodied, intense and powerful, with a lot of tannin. Dark fruits, very complex and highly appealing flavours, including noticeable oak. Best if cellared a couple of years. (Five clones, D5V12 the most important; 30% whole-berry ferments. 50% new oak.)"

“A deep nose with dark fruit and earth and undergrowth potential here. This is one to lay down. The palate has a long and silky wrap of fine yet dense tannin and a gently suave, smoothly delivered textural ride of sweet ripe cherries, red plums and blueberries. Excellent balance to boot. Drink from 2024. Screw cap.”
