This succulent wine has aromas of violets and english rose with seductive flavours of mocha, dark fruits and subtle toasty notes supported by long, rumbling tannins. The wine's dense fruit core will continue to unfold over time, making this wine a delight to drink over the next 10 to 15 years (2020-2025).
"I get one chance a year to make the most exceptional Pinot Noir I can. And even when you get Pinot right, there is always the restless critic's voice in the background echoing "but you can do it again.... even better?" - John Belsham on being an international winemaker and his toughest critic.
