The Four Graces Pinot Noir Reserve, Dundee Hills

The Four Graces Pinot Noir Reserve, Dundee Hills

Pinot Noir grapes for The Dundee Hills Reserve are sourced from the Black Family Estate in the Red Hills of Dundee; the vines, of which there are half a dozen clones, were planted here in 1995. About half of this vineyard estate is farmed sustainably, with the other half being farmed organically. The wine is aged for ten months in French oak, a quarter of which are new barrels. Shows bold aromas of savoury herb, loganberry, cedar and baking spice. The palate offers up black plum, ripe berries, a hint of vanilla and an intriguing touch of Earl Grey tea; muscular tannins balance with assertive acidity to provide an excellent structure.
