Pinot Noir is best known for the light- to medium-bodied reds of regions such as Burgundy and Central Otago (and, in Australia, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills). It also forms part of the classic Champagne blend and is a key contributor to many of the best sparklings. Pinot makes excellent rosés too, with the variety’s delicate charms perfectly suiting this lighter style.
"Here’s a fine, savoury and crunchy Pinot Noir. Cherry, spice, some smoky reduction and autumn leaves kind of gear. Gentle lick of tannin, pleasing sappiness, and a red fruited finish of fair length, some peel-like bitterness in the aftertaste. Good value on offer here." Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM17452
Bright red fruits on the nose that open up onto a palate of raspberry, dark cherry and hints of savoury spices. Medium-bodied with soft tannins gives a fine acid structure to a long finish.

'Light to medium red-purple colour, very bright and youthful. The bouquet is shy and reserved but clean and fragrant, with red cherry to strawberry nuances. A light, almost ethereal pinot of considerable charm.' Huon Hooke

“The fruit for this slinky pinot noir was harvested across two picking windows, the earlier to retain acidity and brightness of fruit, a challenge in this warm vintage. The outcome is a brooding, dark fruited Pinot Noir with an elemental streak of whole-cluster herb and twig, running through the mid-palate. The stems confer some crunchy tannins, too, reining in the flavours of cherry, wood smoke and rhubarb.” Halliday Wine Companion

"[it's] perfumed and has more sweetness to its fruit than many of its vintage brethren. You could almost drink this young and get the full experience though it will benefit greatly given time to soften and evolve. Forest berries, spice, cool garden herbs, mineral and a kiss of sweet/cedary/smoky oak. The fruit feels silken, the tannin feels gruff, but they’re not at odds, they’re managing to get along. It’s going places, this pinot noir." Campbell Mattinson

What a wine! The use of whole bunches during fermentation has given this Pinot a wonderful herbal character, with sappy gaminess and dried cherry aromas. The depth of flavour on the palate is stunning, with incredible concentration and layered complexity. Good length on the finish too, with a spicy, herbal tone. Outstanding.
