Showing good personality, the 2016 vintage (4.5*) is based on the Abel clone of Pinot Noir, estate-grown at Bannockburn and matured for 11 months in seasoned oak barrels. Ruby-hued, it is a distinctive wine, with concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours, a gentle seasoning of oak, good complexity, smooth tannins, and loads of drink-young appeal. Certified organic.
