In exceptional years we produce a Reserve Pinot Noir where we take select parcels of fruit and give them some extra special attention including 33% whole bunch fermentation and extended aging in French oak barrels, with 35% in new oak.
The fourth edition of our Reserve Pinot Noir exhibits dark blue and black fruit aromatics with lots of brooding and spicy undertones. Followed up with a rich warmly textured wine showing good concentration, depth and persistence. This wine will improve with cellaring to at least 2024, however it will still be enjoyable in its youth.

96 points. This is delicious and flattering with awesome complexity and harmony. Fragrant aromas of dark berry, black olive, cedar, truffle and floral lead to a powerfully expressed palate that remains elegant and poised. It is multi-layered and striking with sweet berry flavours combined with deep savoury nuances, finishing extremely long, silky and flowing. At its best: now to 2022.
