Bright red fruits and bramble tones abound, before back palate richness and seamless oak, acid and tannin integration.

Pinot Noir fruit harvested on the 29th March 2017, sourced from Bill Hardy’s site in the cool climate region of Adelaide Hills. A long, slow fermentation was carried out with two short pump-overs daily to limit extraction. Following that, the wine went into French oak for 10 months, a mix of 1 to 4 year old barrels to impart further complexity and character in the wine.
