Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is full with well-packed and up-front aromas of ripe, dark-red berry fruit with dark plums, lifted by dark-red florals and underlined by subtle dark herb nuances. This is plush and fruit-expressive with good depth. Medium-full bodied, the palate has plush and juicy, sweetly rich flavours of ripe dark-red berry fruit with notes of dark plums. The fruit possesses lusciousness and is underlined by soft, fine-grained tannin extraction lending a supple palate, with balanced acidity. Nuances of dark herbs, liquorice and red florals emerge, and the wine carries to a lingering, sweet finish. This is a rich, plush and juicy, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with dark-red berry and plum flavours on a supple, fine-textured palate. Match with pasta, barbecued and roasted duck, pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 4 years. A barrel selection wine, the fruit fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 18% new oak.
