  • Grapes
    100% Tasmanian Pinot Noir sourced
    from our Estate Vineyard at Relbia,
    northern Tasmania.
    Hand-picked Pinot Noir is gently
    destemmed and placed in small
    batch open top fermenters with
    approximately 25% whole bunches.
    Early regular rémontage (pump-over)
    and pigéage (plunging) is used to
    immerse the skins and extract colour
    and tannin as gently as possible.
    After pressing, the wine undergoes
    malolactic fermentation in French oak
    barriques and is matured in oak for 12
    months prior to bottling.
    Whilst approachable now, the richness
    of fruit and fine tannins will reward
    careful cellaring with a complex, spicy
    wine. Optimum cellaring now to 2021.
    Serving Suggestions
    Sushi, charcuterie and lighter red meats.

  • 95 Points James Halliday - Bright light, clear crimson; the expressive bouquet is full of wild strawberry and spice aromas that flow into the perfectly balanced palate, which adds some discrete foresty nuances, promising yet more in the future. As it is, pretty smart.
