The grapes were grown in the Merricks Grove vineyard on a north-south facing block planted in 1995. The Pinot clone is MV6 and vines were pruned using a mix of cane and spur pruning.
Handpicked from our oldest vines, meticulously sorted and fermented in large bins. Hand plunged with gentle pump overs and pressed into old French oak barrels for maturation for 10 months.
Dark cherry and raspberry interwoven with wild herbs and a touch of cocoa and earthiness.The palate is powerful and intense with black fruits and mushroom savouriness, moving seamlessly towards a layered and structured finish.
Sweetly fruited and seductively complex, the wine shows red cherry, ripe strawberry, anise, dark mushroom and roasted nut characters. The palate displays excellent weight and depth, together with refined mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins, offering terrific harmony and length. At its best: now to 2028.
