2022 Pinot Noir


Violets, dark cherry fruits and pomegranate with a hint of cured meat. Ample cherry fruits dominate the palate with a pinch of aniseed spice for complexity. A silky elegance combined with a fine tannin structure, enhanced by some inclusion of bunches to produce a medium-bodied yet powerful style. Plenty of tannin to reward some cellaring.

Silver Medal, 2023 Royal Qld Wine Show

The grapes were hand-picked and chilled overnight. Processing the following day along a fruit sorting table and destemmed gently into our signature small fermenters. Some whole bunches were used to contribute subtle stalk structure to the fruit profile. Working of the ferment by gentle hand plunging twice daily contributes to the soft fruit palate along with gentle pressing. Maturation for 10 months in all French barrels with 30% new and the balance older oak.
