The sites of each block are ideally suited to their clones and this vintage was ideally suited to producing wines of great expression. The cool nights and warm days of summer followed good rainfall in the spring time, allowing the vines to work with ease and the fruit to reach ideal levels of flavour and colour set.
A vintage like this was a true blessing after the challenges of 2009.
H-Block is the backbone of the Reserve Pinot Noir blend. At 25 years of age, this is one of our icon sites. I-Block was primarily planted as a display vineyard yet it produces the best fruit of D5-V12 clone on the Estate.
