Description

"It is elegantly expressed on the nose showing red cherry, plum, thyme, olive and toasted almond characters, leading to a juicy palate that is gently weighted and rounded. The wine offers delightful fruit flavours together with fine texture and polished tannins, leading to a persistent refined finish. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2018

"Light ruby-red colour with dark purple hues at the heart, lighter on the rim, and youthful in appearance.  The nose has a slender but firmly packed core of vibrant, primary, dark-red cherry fruit entwined with violet and dark-red florals, some dark herbal elements and a hint of liquorice.  This is fragrant and has a pretty aromatic lift.  Light-medium bodied, the palate has an elegant heart of sweet, vibrant and uncomplicated dark-red cherry fruit along with an array of violet and red florals with some dark herb nuances.  The fruit is fresh and lively and is lifted by fresh, lacy acidity which enlivens the mouthfeel.  The fruit is underlined by light, supple tannins, which enable approachability, but has sufficient structure to carry the wine to a light, nuanced finish.  This is an attractive and pretty, elegant Pinot Noir with vibrant cherry and floral flavours on a fine-grained, supple palate.  Match with antipasto, tapas, tuna and salmon, or Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years.  Hand-picked fruit, clones 777, 115 and 114, destemmed and fermented to 12.6% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 29% new French oak barriques" Raymond Chan, Jul 2018

Medium purple with crimson hues in the glass with a spiced nose showcasing blackberry, fragrant dried herb, bright sweet redcurrants, smoky char and hints of vanilla and cherry. On the palate opulent red fruit can be found on the entry with sweet red cherry, plums, raspberry and a touch of chocolate. This Mystery Pinot is a medium bodied wine in an elegant style with soft rounded tannins and a long red fruit finish.

Food Pairing: Confit duck with sour cherries, Roast lamb rack with wild thyme and Mushroom risotto
