2009 Pinot Noir Block 3

Tasting Date: 20 January 2015

The opening rich and earthy aromatic is balanced by bright minerality and soft perfume.  Refined tannins underscore a compact palate with elegant herbals and polished cherry fruit.  The finale shows integration of focussed acidity with resolved tannins; a promise of things to come.

Tasting Date: May 2010

As always, the nose is dancing between crushed herbs, florals of rose or violets, musk and dark fruits. The palate is inviting, seamless, with deep, sweetly textured, firm but welcoming chocolate-mocha coated tannins. The wine has great breadth and the promise of power, but without any overt muscularity. Finishes with firm structure: clean, long and hinting of a lot more to come with time in bottle.
