Cracka Review

Here is a real food style of pinot noir. It's a bit more savoury than fruity, but it does have some bright, appealing red berries and hedgerow fruits in the mix of earthy savouriness. The palate is medium-bodied with velvety tannins, and a dry, savoury, berry-edged finish. This comes into it's own with some duck or slow-cooked lamb.

Winemaker's Notes

Plenty of fine pinot character and complexity with spicy forest berry, red cherry, cocoa powder and a handsome layer of fine-grained savoury French oak woven throughout. The palate is supple, lithe and even with layered tannins holding crunchy red cherry flavour in elegant, gently curved shape. Terrific balance and resolve – cherry stone finish.

This area of Pinot was selected for our premium label as it had provided outstanding flavours in the past. The vines were cane pruned and restricted to 20 buds. Trained to a VSP open canopy, to provide sunlight & air movement through the canopy. Minimal watering was used and bunch numbers restricted. The grapes were picked relatively early on 3rd March as soon as the berries developed the required flavour profile.
