Handpicked from this late ripening block of one Pinot Noir clone: D5V12. 11 days on skins and 10 months oak maturation.
TarraWarra Estate, I Block, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2018
Flinty and lifted. Plenty of woody spices and aromatic cherry fruit with red berries, light mint, traces of “Campari” citrus, earthy undergrowth and dusty oak. Showing an initial flowing expanse before curling tight with an intense focus. Will unfurl in the years to come.
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
