2018 Pinot Noir
The 2018 Pinot Noir aromatics pack a full punch of big red fruits: bing cherry, dark cherry, cherry halls, chocolate covered cherry, cassis and black currant. The berry characters are accented with welcome complexities of eucalyptus, clove, allspice, rosemary, oregano, earthy forest floor, with just a hint of a floral note.
The palate is soft and elegant, yet full-bodied and delightfully complex, with well-developed flavours of black currant, berries, leather, tobacco, cigar box, cedar, spice and a nuance of orange marmalade. A darkness ensues with characters of coffee and cocoa, softened by earthy and subtle minty notes, leading through to a long finish of silky warm tannins.
