Vineyard The Estate Vineyard at Dixons Creek. Average vine age 27 years. Clones include MV6, 667 & a small portion of the little known clone MV4. Pinot Noir is planted on the cooler sites that are typically southerly and eastern facing aspects.
Season Terrific Pinot Noir growing season, timely spring rain. Slow ripening, terrific flavour development, highly perfumed vintage.
Tasting Note Bright red colour. Red and dark fruits, wood spice and violets. Generous in character, finesse but soft in style, complex and quite alluring.
Wine Style The Estate Pinot Noir is typified by perfume, structure, some whole bunch characters, a touch of savouriness and fine tannin.
