Lowburn Ferry Pinot Noir

Cracka Review

Delicate aromas of dark fruit and cherry characterise the nose of the Lowburn Ferry Pinot Noir 2008. The palate experiences an elegant blend of mulberry, dried herbs and spices with a long smooth finish enhanced by the silky tannins. The wine matches well with food especially venison, lamb, poultry and duck. It will continue to develop depth and complexity for 5-7 years.

Lowburn Ferry Awards & Accolades

"The 2008 Pinot Noir has a good intensity on the nose: mulberry, raspberry and a touch of wild hedgerow. Soft on the entry, nicely balanced with good clarity and finer tannins with notes of mulberry, raspberry and wild strawberry and quite silky towards the finish. This is more feminine than the earlier vintages, no doubt because of the progressing vine age first planted in 2000." 90 Points - Neal Martin Sept 2009

Lowburn Ferry Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
This represents terrific value from a producer that is definitely one to watch. Plenty of fragrant lift and a whiff of mountain herbs in this vital, fresh pinot that carries impressive richness. Ripe, long and concentrated palate with density and resolve. Cherry and cassis from top to tail.
