Hand picked from low yielding vines at our high altitude, cool climate 300 acre estate in Oakbank. The grapes were chilled for 24-48 hours prior to a partial whole-bunch, whole-berry ferment, using only wild yeast. Extended maceration and maturation in 100% French Oak barrels for 10 months. Displaying complex aromas of strawberries and cream with hints of forest floor. The palate is seamless and elegant. Red fruits with enticing gamey characters swirl within layers of mushroom and notes of fresh herbs. The French oak adds ample but delicate tannins delivering a generous delightful length. Savour on its own or enjoy as an outstanding accompaniment to a duck or game dish, alternatively stuffed wild mushrooms as a vegetarian option. Drinking beautifully now but will continue to evolve with careful cellaring.

”Excellent year, excellent wine. It just follows, doesn’t it. This is a Pinot that delivers on a light to medium bodied palate but does so with so much panache and style. Initially there’s a combo of strawberry with a little sweet raspberry on the nose. But then the deeper gamey characters emerge on the palate. Support comes from the chalky tannins and a slick super fine addition of oak. Great stuff.”
