Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Planted by Gary Andres, an Oregon Pinot Noir pioneer who wished to create a Pinot Noir to rival the great Burgundies, the block is named after the shingle beach below the block. Shingle Beach is a densely planted block which reaches optimal ripeness at low sugar levels and bears tiny, pristine grapes. The result is evident in the hallmarks of this wine; fine grained tannins, minerality, earthiness and concentrated dark fruit flavours. Vibrant and elegant. Glorious texture and refined structure define this compelling Pinot Noir. It is dense yet silky, powerful yet perfectly poised."
4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"From a block of mature, close-planted vines, the 2016 vintage was matured in French oak puncheons (20 per cent new). Light ruby, it is a fragrant, savoury, middleweight red, with cherryish, spicy, slightly herbal flavours, showing excellent complexity. It's already very expressive; drink now to 2028."
