    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose explodes with dark cherries, cranberries and fresh raspberries backed by subtle nutmeg and cinnamon spices. Underlying truffles and meaty, wet earth and mushroom notes add complexity. The juicy palate displays fresh berries with a slippery, rich and slightly tart finish. The perfect match for chargrilled quail and rosemary, or Peking duck pancakes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Pinot Noir comes from 6 growers right across the Yarra and I'm told all the fruit was harvested before the fires. It receives around 20-30% carbonic maceration. With a medium ruby color, it gives intense, lifted raspberry and warm cherry aromas with that distinctive carbonic estery character. It has a medium body with medium acidity and a good amount of berry fruit in the mid-palate. Drink this one now to 2014.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright red. Spicy red berries and flowers on the nose, with a subtle herbal quality adding complexity. Fresh raspberry and candied rose flavors are given spine and focus by tangy minerality. Opens up with aeration, taking on a deeper dark berry character while maintaining energy. Easygoing and attractively sweet pinot with good finishing clarity and juicy persistence. This would be good lightly chilled.
