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 red cherry, strawberry 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 red 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.

Professional Reviews

“As with the Reserve releases we’ve witnessed over many years, this has a latent power, deep down in the aromatic wells. Say it again – deep down. The fruit has a darker cherry expression, the fragrance in the nose rising gently, savoury forest like elements in the palate well entwined. The weight is ethereal and exhibits a class, medium-bodied line and length, all of it lingering around the top and sides of your mouth for eons. So special, even tasted in its early stages of a long life.”

“A beguiling and ethereal Pinot Noir that unites the exotic spice and floral fragrance of whole bunch fermentation with the luscious red berry and wild strawberry depth of the Adelaide Hills. Nuances of pepper and rose hip add excitement and class. Silky, fine-grained tannins and lively acidity drive a finish of excellent persistence. Classy, enticing and enthralling. One of the greats from this fabled vineyard.”

"Medium to light red colour with a faint purple tint on the rim. The bouquet is restrained and spicy with dried underbrush, mushroom and umami notes, plenty of savoury touches on a palate, which fades a little but there is a tannin kick that draws it out a little longer. There is structure here to cope with protein-rich foods. A very good food wine."
