The grapes were 100% de-stemmed and fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine was matured in French oak barrels (40% new) for 12 months. Aromatic wine with layers cherry, plum, spice and subtle floral flavours. Good flavour intensity with impressive purity and energy. This is classy Pinot with a good deal of power and a lengthy finish.

Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2011 Pinot Noir possesses a nose of mulberries, black raspberries and kirsch accented by underlying hints of cardamom, forest floor and moss. Medium to full-bodied, it has a good concentration of red and blackberry flavors with a pleasant earthy edge and is framed by medium level, grainy tannins and vibrant acid through the finish with good length. Drink it now to 2017+. 90+ - LPB
