A plush, red-fleshed Pinot Noir from Bendigo, Central Otago. Bright, crimson red in appearance with sweet, juicy red fruits on the palate. Blackberry, Morello cherry and cacao dominate. Soft and supple mouthfeel with a long, persistent finish. Youthful and approachable now, though will continue to gain complexity over the next 2-3 years.

Tasting note
A fruit-forward, savoury Pinot Noir with concentration of flavour, texture and richness.

The fruit was hand harvested, 75% whole bunch and wild-fermented in stainless steel tank where it was gently macerated for four weeks before being pressed into aged French oak barriques where it underwent full malolactic fermentation and aging on lees for 12 months before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Professional Reviews & Tasting Notes

93 Points - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

"Medium ruby-red with a purple hue, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is forward and packed with aromas of black fruit, thyme, spice, and a hint of funk. Medium-bodied, aromas of black cherry and black raspberry interweave with thyme, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of earth. The succulent fruit is ripe with balanced, fresh acidity; ripe tannins smoothly coat the palate and linger with spice and earth to a mealy finish. Match with lamb ribs and braised duck over the next 3+ years. Handpicked, 75% whole bunch and wild fermented in tank for four weeks, then pressed into seasoned French oak barriques for 12 months. Underwent MLF, unfined, unfiltered. 13% alc. Organic certifed. 18.5/20 pts (93pts) May 2024 RRP $30"

91 Points - Stephen Wong MW, The Real Review

"Mid-ruby. A layered, perfumed nose with red fruit, spice and floral notes arranged in an interesting and open bouquet. The palate is charming and juicy-fruited. A light dusting of tannin trims the finish. Approachable now and food-friendly, the palate comfortably navigates being refreshingly bright while still possessing enough complexity and depth to keep your interest. Very drinkable. Drink 2024–2032"
