This Pinot Noir shows a deep intense magenta and purple colour. The nose is elegant with berry fruits and some spicy, cedar notes. On the palate the wine is medium bodied with spicy savoury dark cherry flavours. The French oak barriques used in maturing this wine provide structure and intensity while being perfectly integrated. Typical Tamar Ridge tannins are balanced by supple fruit character that builds into a long, silky finish.

Tamar Ridge Vineyard
The Tamar Ridge range of wines offers pristine varietal definition, great purity of fruit character, and the refreshing acidity which is the hallmark of genuine cool climate wine. Only grapes grown at our Kayena Vineyard are selected for this range of wines. Located on the western banks of the Tamar River, Northern Tasmania, Kayena Vineyard is planted to a range of cool climate varieties. The majority of the vineyard is planted on gentle undulating slopes with a northerly and north-easterly aspect. All vines are hand-pruned and a significant amount of the fruit produced at Kayena is hand harvested to produce grapes that display pristine fruit flavours and distinctive varietal character.
