Cracka Review

This is quite a generous pinot noir from Harewood. It's chock full of cherries, berries and soft, earthy spices, with liberal hits of coffee oak on the nose, whilst the palate is medium to full-bodied, with juicy red and black berry flavours, licks of meatiness and vanillian oak, fine and ripe tannins, bright acidity, and a dry mocha finish. It will cellar, but it could also stand up to some lamb right now.

Winemaker's Notes

Dark ruby with purple hues.

A complex nose of cherries, spice, licorice and mocha complemented by perfumed floral notes, gamey, mushroom characters and toasty French oak.

The selection of clones has given the wine impressive texture and fruit weight. Rich flavours of black cherry and raspberry are balanced by more complex hints of spice, mushroom and aniseed. The wine finishes with mocha and gamey characters supported by fine grained mature tannins and vanillin French oak.
