    Review by Ramond Chan – 17.5+/20

    Light ruby-red colour, pale on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is firm with well-concentrated and dense aromas of ripe strawberry
    and red cherry fruit, along with herb motes, red florals and subtle whole bunch stalk elements at the core. Medium-bodied, the palate is stylishly restrained in expression with gentle flavours of strawberries and red cherries melded with red floral and herb notes, and suggestions of whole bunch stalk. The mouth feel is sweet and juicy with light tannin extraction lending suppleness and accessibility. Lacy acidity provides energy and the wine leads to an elegant, light finish of strawberries and herbs. This is an elegant, accessible Pinot Noir with strawberry and cherry fruit along with herb elements. Serve with tuna and salmon, and with poultry over the next 4 years. Clones 5 and 115 hand-picked and fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11.5 months in 30% new French oak
