In vintage 2014 we decided, after repeated requests, to make a Reserve Pinot Noir (something that we have continued in subsequent vintages) – it has been a while, the last Reserve Pinot Noir we made was in 2006! The time has now come to release both our Estate Pinot Noir and the Reserve Pinot Noir wines! But we want to make sure that our loyal mailing list members are given priority notification – especially for the 2014 Reserve Pinot Noir, with less than 50 dozen of this rare wine available to purchase.
2014 Estate Pinot Noir: Made in our traditional bold style, this cool climate Pinot Noir has a spicy dark cherry nose and an intense, balanced palate with flavours of dark plums and cherries, savoury spices and subtle French oak. Perfect with roast duck or pork, this wine may be enjoyed now or confidentially cellared. Winner of 4 gold medals, 96 points from James Halliday, 95 points from both Nick Stock and Huon Hooke and more. Full details of the wine and its numerous awards can be found here.
2014 Reserve Pinot Noir: This is a showcase Tasmanian Pinot Noir, selected from the very best parcels of fruit. This is a complex and powerful wine, with flavours of dark cherry and raspberry, spice and French oak flavours and excellent length and balance. This limited release wine can be enjoyed now, but will reward careful cellaring. The small volume made meant that it couldn’t be entered into most wine shows but it has still won 2 gold medals and been described as “A really superb wine” by wine writer Huon Hooke. More details can be found here.
You can purchase either or both of these wines via our secure online shop here – remember that you can mix and match and the minimum total order is only 6 bottles. Cheers, Fred
