This is a wonderful expression of this vineyard. So many aromas slowly rise out of the glass: Framboise and cherry, coffee, cola, and black licorice are just a few of the many and constantly evolving elements in the bouquet. Well made, this Pinot Noir is intense, but still subtle, and sublime, not explosive. The wine has the power and the finesse.

    Huge amounts of flavour packed into a lighter frame. It is bursting with strawberries and raspberries.

    Slightly reductive, stemmy, stalky bouquet. Fresh and firm with overt cedary oak sitting just on top of the wine. Not quite fully integrated.

    Developed vanilla red fruits slight farmyard aromas. Sweet fruited earthy flavours, fine looseknit stalky notes. Dark chelate notes at the finish.
