Palate: Raspberry, wild strawberry, hint of chocolate, fine tannins, sage, cherry finish

Vintage NotesAfter a slow wet start, 2012 delivered three warm and sunny months allowing the fruit in this ample vintage to shine through in what we are referring to affectionately as a “cherry bomb”. This year’s Pinot Noir is delicate, yet structured and with its fine tannins, is as smooth as silk.

This Pinot Noir was hand picked from our own 18-year-old vines as well as our neighbour’s, Four Shadows Vineyard, on the 24th of October and 2nd of November 2012 at 3.4 tons per acre.
