"From a south-facing block that was planted in 2001, this particular plot ripens a touch later than the rest of the Pinot blocks on the home property. The quality and power of the vintage allowed for some whole-bunch inclusion (25%), adding structure to the wine. The 1er Pinot Noir spends 12 months in barrel (25% new) in the downstairs cellar followed by a winter in tank upstairs to naturally settle before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. It's pure and complex with alluring aromas of bright red fruit, spice, purple florals and some earthy undertones. The palate is full and generous, but with all the elegance and finesse you expect from great Pinot Noir. Tight, fine-grained tannins, balanced acidity and complex length close out a very impressive wine." - Winemaker Notes 
“It’s so calm and seductive, and while it shows a little more creamy spicy biscuit oak than usual, or so I think, it’s nothing overt. Aside that, red cherry and red berries, spice, mint and floral top notes, with silky fine tannin, though they offer a distinct ‘mineral’ character, with a crushed stone sort of thing, and some more earthy/savoury flavours. Not at all sweet, maybe even a little bony, though the red fruit is ample. The finish is very long, a tight tannin dusting as it goes. Probably the best vintage of 1er Pinot since 2015.” - 96 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
