A very focused and precise definition of the 2002 vintage from this single vineyard. Very Pinot on the nose, showing vibrant red and black fruit. Bright and complex palate, real elegance and finesse with restrained power and tight structure. A stylish, energetic wine which will require a few years of aging to reach fully integrated harmony.
Vibrant red and black fruit, bright and complex. A powerful yet elegant Pinot with finesse and good structure.
Product SKU: 728371
Almost flashy depth to the colour, luminous dark red. Luscious, clearly expressed ripe Pinot nose, with black fruit swirling with some lovely underlying spicy/mocha oak. Lifted floral high tones from the Gibbston fruit. The palate has a creamy elegance, a defining silkiness that emerges immediately and prevails. The charming fruit succulence and richness is counterpointed by a thread of minerality, finishing with dense end tannins. A very graceful expression of Pinot power.
