Reserve Pinot Noir
Single Vineyard | French Oak Aged

Sourced entirely from single cane, single bunch per shoot vines, the fruit for our Reserve Pinot Noir is hand harvested, then destemmed and the juice fermented on skins for 4 days, with daily plunging to extract tannins and flavour. The juice is 100% matured in French Oak for 10 months, during which time it undergoes secondary malolactic fermentation that further enhances flavour and texture.

The grape yield is kept very low (2t/Ha) in our reserve rows to produce a wine with great flavour concentration and the ability to age well. Only the best 2 or 3 barrels of Reserve Pinot Noir are selected for this label. Production is limited to 100 cases.

Tasting Notes

This wine has fragrant notes of blueberry and strawberry, with a hint of violets. The sweet berry fruit, dark cherry and toasted oak flavours combine with rich velvety tannins that expand and linger on the palate, creating an elegant and full-bodied wine.

Perfect with pan-fried eye fillet, venison ragout, mushroom risotto or chocolate desserts. Enjoy now or up to 10 years after vintage date.
