Description

"Our 2022 Estate Pinot Noir consists of eleven separate lots representing distinct aspects, clones and soils. Each of these parcels were handled with attention to vineyard details with the aim of maximising site expression. Indigenous yeasts connect all ferments but varying amounts of whole bunch, post ferment skin contact and individual oak handling were utilised respective to the lot characters themselves. Each of these parcels combine to form our most complex Pinot Noir, with fragrant spices and a red fruit lift that seamlessly merges with darker fruits and more savoury complexities. A myriad of vineyard based tannin entwines with gentle oak handling to accentuate a length of mineral clarity. After 16 months maturation our Estate blend consists of 6% whole bunch and 17% new oak and was bottled without filtration. Overall we are delighted with 2022 which expresses with wonderful fragrance, nuanced depth, supple yet ample texture brought together with chime of fresh mineral acidity." - Winemaker Notes 

"This wine delivers ample reason for intrigue. Red cherries, musk, root spices and warming notes of shiitake mushrooms, dashi and undergrowth, conferring depth and ample, medium-bodied complexity. The tannins are chewy and satisfying, yet in need of resolution. Spicy and firm. This stands to age well. Drinkable now, but best from 2026." - 95 Points, Ned Goodwin MW

"I like the stringiness of this, the tension, the fruit, the length. It’s real pinot. It feels as though it’s desperate to rush forward but it holds itself back until it gets to the finish, where it runs. It has a minerally aspect, a sour ripeness, a thread of woodsmoke, a garni of herbs. It will cellar beautifully. It’s cool, ripe, savoury, seamless & long." - 95 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
