60% Pinot Noir
Amber in colour with green and orange tints and a fine, lively sparkle.
Complex and intense with aromas of candied citrus, Williams pear, pollen and toasted almond. The 2008 has an almost saline concentration derived from chalky soil in a particularly cool summer. The result is a smooth yet powerful wine with a long, taught and pure finish.
The 2008 has been tamed by an unusually long period of bottle ageing: it was aged for 10 years before its release.
