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.
Fragrant aromas of red and black fruits with hints of crushed herbs and spice. The palate is juicy and mouth-filling with rich fruit flavours and savoury undertones, supported by smooth tannins which lead to a persistent finish. Vibrant and elegant this wine will not disappoint.

A wonderful Mornington Pinot sitting firmly in the savoury end of the spectrum. Complex aromas of leaf litter and earth, mushroom and cured meats, all wrapped around a core of blood plum. The generous palate has dark fruits, and black tea characters with leather and spice, culminating in a long, layered and savoury finish. Outstanding.

Earthy characters combine with delicate notes of strawberry, cherry and nuances of oak to create a lovely wine of freshness and length. Drinking beautifully now but will reward with careful cellaring.

Single Vineyard wine from the famous Bannockburn region in Central Otago. The vineyard is across the road from Felton Rd vineyards and is surrounded by iconic sites. With dark purple hues, this wine is wonderfully complex. Aromas of violets, plums, and cherries, are complemented by the flavours of rich dark fruits with a flourish of pretty red and raspberry on the finish. With good fruit concentration and supportive oak tannins, this wine has a lovely long persistence on the finish.

"Medium to full red to brick-red colour with the merest trace of purple remaining. The bouquet is shy and gently smoky, with forward-developed aromas and a kiss of oak, but it comes into its own in the mouth. The wine has complexity and charm; soft, fine-grained tannins and gentle texture. There is amplitude and generosity of flavour and it is quite complex. An entertaining pinot that already drinks well." Halliday Wine Companion
