2014 Reserve Pinot Noir

The fruit batches are kept separate in barrel and blended to the style intended to express the truest form of the varietal character and the site.A vibrant perfumed aroma of raspberries, rose petals, plum and restrained cedar oak, the wine shows nuances of complexity on the nose.

The palate is finely layered opening with pure fruit, a fine texture, grainy tannins and a generous palate. It has wonderful persistence of flavour and excellent potential for long term cellaring.  Drink now and over 10 or more years.

Vine age & features: Produced from heritage, low yielding vines at 30 years of age, planted on north facing slopes.

Site Selection: H-Block is the backbone of the Reserve Pinot Noir blend. At 30 years of age, this is one of our icon sites. It consistently produces our highest quality Pinot Noir, the soil is naturally low yielding giving optimum vine balance. I block was planted in 1989, originally as a clone trial block. The years have shown the D5V12 to be most suited to the site, the balance being grafted over in 2001. This clone often perfoms well in warmer years.

Vintage Notes: 2014 was a warmer vintage, with very low yields. Although the average maximum temperatures were much lower than average, allowing the fruit to retain acid and develop pure flavours.

REGAN DREW Vino Notebook, 20 Jul 2016
Ripe cherry fruit and rich brown spice. A salty bitter lick, slightly sweet toffee caramel nose. An amount of stink, reductive cabbage that eventually blows off to become rose petal, before lipstick and smoked woods. Warmer vintage is apparent with full-ish fruit up front but still a statuesque body. Palate is cherry Ripe and delicate plum before tannin drawstrings pull tight. Lingering savoury meat and master stock balance. Expressive, but not too overt. Quality Pinot Noir.
