Winemaker Notes

The nose explodes with dark cherries, cranberries and fresh raspberries backed by subtlenutmeg and cinnamon spices. Underlying truffles and meaty, wet earth and mushroomnotes add complexity. The juicy palate displays fresh berries with a slippery, rich andslightly tart finish. The perfect match for chargrilled quail and rosemary, or Peking duckpancakes.

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

Critical Acclaim

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.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

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.
