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.
This is the fifth vintage of Mike’s new Pinot Noir using grapes grown from the 777 clone. The grape bunches are thinned three times during the growing season to maximise intensity of the fruit flavour. The wine is matured in French oak and receives minimal filtration. The nose is floral with slight earthy overtones. The high altitude of the single vineyard is captured in the elegant palate.

"Stylish, complex and engaging, the bouquet shows ripe berry, spiced plum, game and earthy mushroom characters with a touch of dried herb note. It is beautifully weighted and attractively fruited on the palate, delivering fine texture and seductive savoury undertones, elegantly framed by polished tannins. At its best: now to 2020." Sam Kim
