Grown in cool-climate Mount Gambier, South Australia.
Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex bouquet awash with true Pinot characters. It has hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cherry notes.
Region: Cape Banks, on Mount Gambier’s rugged coastline has the perfect cool-climate and soil conditions for Pinot Noir.
The rocks under the vines are razor sharp, like teeth rising from the soil. We lose a lot of tyres, but this soil makes each vine struggle, keeping the vigour low and flavours complex.
“There is a buzz around pinot grown in Mount Gambier and there’s a good reason for it. Cool growing conditions, rocky, minerally soil, and low-yielding vines contribute to the hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cheery notes. This is a more-ish tribute to the local landscape and begs for foggy evenings, an armchair and plenty of time to waste.” – 4 Stars, Katie Spain, Wine Writer Adelaide Advertiser 2019
“Vibrant cherry & strawberry aromas, a very smooth and ubber tasty mid weight palate, with a delightful, lingering finish. A CLASS ACT!” – Dan Traucki, wine writer
Food match: Tea smoked duck breast and roast potatoes with truffle salt.
