Already with a cult following this wine has almost become a fashion statement and given International fame by Reece Witherspoon instagraming to her 10 million followers that it was her "favourite wine". Produced from Pinot Noir, very lightly pressed with minimal skin contact resulting in a very pale colour – known as a 'blanc de noirs'. Sitting between a rose and white wine, this dry wine should be chilled lightly and served as an aperitif. 


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This unique Blanc de Noir was made from 100% Pinot noir grapes, grown on our family owned vineyard. Ripe hand picked fruit and gentle winemaking have given a wonderfully balanced wine. The elegant champagne colour resulted from minimal skin contact prior to a gentle whole bunch press. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics."


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"There’s the merest wash of baby pink to the glassy hue of this Blanc de Noir made from pinot noir.  Cherry and subtle nuances of musk float on the scent and strawberry and pepper fill the taste with a lightly viscous mouthfeel and lingering touches of salinity that make you want to have another sip. Dry to off dry in style with a succulence to the cherry-filled finish."


91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Pristine and bright, the inviting bouquet shows red apple, nectarine, raspberry and floral characters. The palate is equally delightful and appealing with juicy fruit flavours and fine texture, brilliantly structured by crisp acidity, finishing vibrant and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2020."


4 Stars & 17.5-/20 Raymond Chan, June 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale pink colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh and fragrant with lifted aromas of red florals, strawberries and red berry fruits entwined with fresh fermentation esters of bananas and confectionary. This has depth and density and shows aromatic clarity, whilst retaining elegant and slender. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good, rounded heart with concentrated flavours of red florals, strawberries, soft-red berry fruits melded with fresh fermentation esters and confectionary elements. The mouthfeel is soft, rounded and smooth-flowing with a light phenolic line and integrated lacy acidity guiding the wine. The wine carries to a long, lingering finish of florals and esters. This is a very youthful Blanc de Noirs with soft floral, strawberry flavours and fermentation esters on a smooth-flowing palate and a light phenolic line. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and Asian fare over the next 2 years. A Blanc de Noir. 100% Pinot Noir, hand-picked from the estate, given minimal skin contact, WBP and fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 4.7 g/L RS."
