2016 ESTATE PINOT NOIR
Made exclusively from our Rahona Valley estate from five clones - MV6, 115, G5V15, D2V5, D5V12. Pinot Noir is the holy grail of grape varieties. It must be grown in the right place and be given much love to get fully ripe but do so slowly. Rahona Valley is a late ripening vineyard in a late ripening region, so this attention is doubly important. This wine illustrates the rewards of such effort.
From a slightly warmer vintage than 2015, the usual sublimely perfumed strawberries and berries, are combined with a few plummy and savoury notes as well.
