Pinot Noir 2016: Awarded 5 Stars and Classic Status

Awarded 5 Stars and Classic Status

"Certified biodynamic, the classy 2016 vintage (5*) was estate-grown at Bendigo, hand-picked and matured for a year in French oak barriques. Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant and mouthfilling, savoury and supple, with deep cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent complexity. A very harmonious and 'complete' wine, it's already delicious, but also age-worthy."
