This is the first ever release of this special single vineyard pinot noir.
Winemaker Notes: Initially quite spicy on the nose, the wine has an intense perfume of brambly red berry fruit, wild flowers and dried herbs. Very fine tannins fill the mouth and push the sinewy red fruits to the back of the palate, where the flavours become quite expansive on an elegant minerally acid tail. The wine finishes with considerable energy and drive.
The 2012 MKII comes from the beautiful Mark II vineyard in the Parkburn region of Cromwell. It's owned by our consultant viticulturist Michelle Crawford and her partner Mark Mason. We have been receiving fruit off this vineyard for the past few years and are very excited about the potential of this lovely bit of land.
