Description

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

Nose

Aromas of black cherry and plum are entwined with lovely savoury, autumnal notes. The darker fruits are accentuated by the subtle use of French oak which results in a powerfully fragrant nose.

Mouth

The concentrated palate features juicy dark fruits, and brooding earthy notes. The charry French oak sits quietly in the background and layers of fine tannin provide a supple and long finish.

Growing Conditions

Cold conditions at flowering resulted in low grape yields in the Adelaide Hills and throughout South Australia in 2019. However, the high altitude of the Piccadilly Valley ensures late flowering and the spring of 2018 provided a warm window late in the season bringing average yields to the sub-region. Quality was excellent owing to dry conditions which meant there were no disease or pest issues and all batches of pinot noir showed strong colour, concentration and flavour.

Professional Reviews

“This has pristine aromas of red flowers, red cherries, pomegranate, orange zest and a thrillingly fresh overall impression that is driven by beautifully ripe pinot fruit. The palate is so succulent and smooth-honed with finely layered tannins delivering succulent, long and juicy impact on the finish. Impressive poise here. This is nicely tuned. Drink or hold. Screw cap.”
