Our flagship Pinot Noir. Only made in the very best years, using only the very best parcels of fruit. Our Reserve wines epitomise time, place and effort in the purest of forms. Our very best expression of variety, viticulture, location, season and winemaking.

An impeccably seamless palate that flows from front to back, both integrated and complex. Dark fruits sing, with black cherry and Satsuma plum in the forefront. Rich with great depth and a fine-boned strucutre, the finish is a fanfare of silky fruit and fine tannins.

A colour of excellent depth and hue. It's dark fruited, showing dark plum, black cherry, vanilla and toasty smokey oak tinges. Complex! Full-bodied and dense, rich and fleshy. Great concentration and texture; velvety, fleshy softenss. Deliciously succulent. An outstanding pinot.
