Winemaker's Notes

The wine was much lighter on release than the previous three vintages which made us tend to dismiss it early on. However it developed a beguiling charm and alluring perfume despite not having a lot of weight. The wine had perfect balance in a more delicate style and we have learned a great deal about how a light, delicate style of Pinot Noir can age beautifully. This wine is now starting to fade, but it has lasted much longer than we ever thought it would.

Critical Acclaim

"Spicy, peppery flavors make for an unusually zingy Pinot Noir, showing a little more bite than fruit at this point. Has impressive length and generosity as the currant, blackberry and cherry flavors slowly emerge."
