"Our 2011 pinot noir captures your senses with immense florals including violets, boronia and flowering wild thyme. Raspberry licorish entices further along with wild strawberry, dark cherries, tabacco & spice. The palate is juicy but balanced by rich forest floor, clove and savoury flavours. Good tension between acid and fine tannins offers a well rounded palate with appealing length. We particularly enjoy our pinot noir with smoked duck breast, grilled portabello mushrooms and rack of venison."
"A warm spring emerged from an unusually wet winter, providing the perfect conditions for rapid spring growth. Warm conditions continued and flowering occurred a week earlier than average in late November. Rainfall in November and December allowed for a high level of fruit set and strong bunch growth through January. These ideal conditions lead to heavy crops and therefore vineyards were ruthlessly thinned in late January to maximise fruit quality and advance ripening."
