Winemaker's Notes

"The wonderful 2006 Pinot Noir comes with a lovely, pure nose of wild strawberry, red cherry, limestone and a touch of rose petal – superb definition and sophistication. The palate is medium-bodied, very good acidity. Harmonious, delicate on the poised, well-defined palate with a bright finish embellished with cherry, strawberry and minerals. Superb length once again, this is a divine Pinot Noir."
-Wine Advocate

Deep red colour. Ripe intense red and dark berry fruit aromas and subtle oak. The taste is of concentrated ripe red and dark fruits and soft fine grained tannins. In the mid palate the fruit sweetness is seductive and the taste impression finishes with fine texture and long persistence of pinot noir flavours. While drinking well at release it has the concentration and structure to reward cellaring for a year or three.
