Almost flashy depth to the colour, luminous dark red. Luscious, clearly expressed ripe Pinot nose, with black fruit swirling with some lovely underlying spicy/mocha oak. Lifted floral high tones from the Gibbston fruit. The palate has a creamy elegance, a defining silkiness that emerges immediately and prevails. The charming fruit succulence and richness is counterpointed by a thread of minerality, finishing with dense end tannins. A very graceful expression of Pinot power.
