A bright and dense crimson colour. The aromas are intense and complex for a young wine - red fruits, raspberry, red currant with dark cherries, coupled with a floral and spicy note. The palate is super fine and silky with layers of flavour and texture leading to a long and bold finish. Cellar for at least five years, and preferably more than 10.

FROM THE PRESS
““What a classy wine this is. Concentrated, spicy, layered and very fine, this 2021 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir from Yabby Lake shows the purity and finesse of the 2021 vintage. In spades. It has notes of raspberry leaf tea, black cherry, hints of matcha, pink peppercorns and red apple skins. Through the finish, there emerges a distinctly spicy, almost exotic character: the thinking swings from chinotto to alpine herbs and back again. The acidity is saline and threads through the fruit with invisible stitches. A beautiful wine.” 94 ”Erin Parkin, RobertParker.com
