Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker Allan Johnson aims for a "ripe, full and rich" Pinot Noir. In recent years the wines have won many accolades.

Deep red colour. Ripe concentrated red and dark berry fruits with ripe plum aromas, a touch of leather and toasty oak. Soft full and long flavour with intense sweet-ripe fruit and tannins in a focused structure. Soft lingering finish with long flavour length. A beautiful wine.

"Far and away the best Palliser Pinot Noir we've ever reviewed, the 2005 boasts complex, savory aromas and flavors that match ripe black cherry and plum fruit with peppery-herbal notes and hints of smoke, meat and brown sugar. The creamy, supple tannins are balanced by crisp acids and concentrated fruit on the long finish. Drink now–2015."
