  • Fresh berry & cherry
  • Fine tannins

"Big, solidly-structured Pinot Noir that shows the influence of a warm site, ripe vintage and 50% whole-bunches in fermentation. Seriously solid wine that's a bit locked in by tannins right now but promises to reveal ever-increasing spicy complexity as it ages" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jan 2020

Deep garnet hue with bright fruit aromas of blackberry, cherry, and plum with toasted almond, coffee, and cedar. Fresh berry and cherry on the palate with nutmeg, mushroom, and earthy loam. A fresh and lively palate with fine tannins that build in the mouth with a long, vibrant finish. This vintage shows noteworthy freshness and refinement for Bendigo in a warm growing season. Bold and bright, this wine is intricately layered with a sturdy structure and incredible detail. Lively and inviting in its youth, this wine will also go the distance and is worthy of cellaring for 10+ years.
