While there's an abundance of richness and flavour here, it's all tempered by structure and the wine's overall finesse. It's fuller bodied but not weighty. Ripe fruit, woodsy spices, licorice and menthol bow to fine and chalky tannins. Lots of texture, plenty of enjoyment now and for a few years yet.

The Brief
How's it taste?
The Denton Pinot Noir block sits at the very top of our North Eastern slope, and sees the softest morning light and is shielded from the hot afternoon sun. The planting density here is 1.3m x 0.8m and this high density spacing always gives us more power and concentration while maintaining the lightness and elegance of the vineyard. The granitic sand over granite boulders and long, slow growing season provide a very special and unique terroir. This unique micro-climate and soil profile contribute lots of bright, fresh red and black fruit, and mineral florals, framed by fine tannin on an acid frame. Fermented with 80% whole bunches included, wild yeast fermented and held on skins for 19 days with frequent plunging and foot stomping. No temperature control. Pressed to 500 litre French oak puncheons (15% new) and left unsulfured for 12 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration.

Attractive colour is a flying start, carrying with it a full mouthful of red cherry and plum fruit. The winemaker seems content to allow the fruit flavours to stand on their own two feet, secure in the knowledge that spicy/violets/rose petals will come over the next 2-3 years.
