Made only in the best years, this wine is a showcase of just how good Pinot Noir from the Tamar Valley can be. This Reserve Pinot Noir is deep crimson red with hints of purple. It has mouth-filling flavours of raspberry and blueberries. The fruit flavours are balanced by a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to the finish which is long and persistent with lingering ripe fruit. The wine is drinking well now and with careful cellaring will develop more complex and savoury characters over time in bottle. Cellar 8-10 years.
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.
