Wine Profile

Tasting Notes On release the wine has a bright crimson hue. Its vibrant aromas and flavours suggest black cherries, blackberries, raspberries and mulberries. These impressions of fruit are underlain with savoury notes hinting of grilled mushrooms, barbequed meats and wood-smoke. It initially seems soft in the mouth but rapidly expands to become powerful, while at the same time remaining refined and elegant. A spine of ripe tannins flows through the wine and helps draw out its lingering after-taste. While ready to drink on release, with careful cellaring it should become more expressive and multifaceted over the next 6-8 years and live well beyond.
Ratings Rated 91+ Wine Advocate - "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2009 Pinot Noir offers a moderate intensity of raspberry, red cherry and pomegranate aromas at this stage with a yeasty / toasty undercurrent and a whiff of hung meat. The medium bodied palate is elegantly fruited with a medium level of fine tannins, lively acidity and a long finish. Still very young, it should drink best 2012 to 2017+."
Production Notes This was a splendid vintage in general and an exceptional one for pinot noir with perfect weather throughout the season. Modest crops have given the wine excellent fruit expression. This wine was made naturally using traditional Burgundian methods, with no added micro-organisms.
