Winemaker 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.

The 2008 season, with long, warm summer days and cool nights, produced fruit with ideal ripeness and sugar balance. Vineyard sites were selected for their high diurnal temperature range, resulting in wines with high natural acidity and low pH. All fruit was hand harvested.

Vivid red. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, potpourri and minerals. Impressively pure, with fresh red berry flavors and seductive sweetness. The finish strongly echoes the raspberry note and leaves a tangy trail of minerals and flowers behind. A super value for pinot.

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion

Really bright colour and lovely vibrant fruit; young, juicy and lots of fun with a touch of spice playing support to delicious cherry fruit; certainly a wine to be enjoyed and not necessarily in moderation.
