Esteemed Australian wine critic, James Halliday says of this bottle "Seductive for both its fruit and its oak, our 2013 Pinot Noir is organically grown and hand harvested at our vineyard in Red Hill. It is succulent with sweet tips of fruit-filled flavour but enough savouriness and tannin to underline its seriousness. A wine you must try."
Crushed herbs and spice aromas lead to a well-structured dark berry palate. Here we find some harmonious-textured, mouth-filling wine with layers of interest. The 2013 Pinot Noir will evolve over 15 years.
Estate-grown grapes only.

An excellent choice to have with duck, game meats, Asian foods and beef bourguignon.
