Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, with slight purple hues.  The nose is somewhat shy in expression, but shows good vinous presence and depth, revealing dark-red and black cherry and berry fruits with subtle notes of dark and fresh herbs, unfolding nuances of liquorice and spice, with violet floral suggestions.  Medium-bodied, the palate is restrained in flavour, but the mouthfeel has good vinosity and weight.  The flavours of dark-red and black cherries and berries form a fine core, and unfold to reveal subtle notes of dark herbs, spice nuances and violet florals.  The fruit grows in sweetness and richness, as the wine flows along a light, supple line with lacy acidity providing liveliness and vitality.  The wine carries with good linearity to a lingering finish of berry fruits, spices and herbs.  This is a restrained Pinot Noir that blossoms in richness to show dark-red and black fruits with nuances of herbs, spices and liquorice on a supple palate.  Match with antipasto and tapas over the next 3 years.  Fruit from the ‘Claim 431’ vineyard, Bendigo, destemmed and fermented with a portion of whole berries, partially by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged in new and seasoned French oak barriques and in tank.  17.0/20  Dec 2018  RRP $24.99
