Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"This carefully cellared reserve wine is only released a minimum of five years after harvest. It represents a tiny selection from our Home Vineyard, grown and made to showcase our unique site with the benefit of time. 720 Bottles were produced.

The grapes were sourced from our Home Vineyard which is located on a high-elevation, steep glacial terrace in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. This stunning site has clay and pedogenic lime soil, featuring schist and quartz.

The grapes were handpicked and field sorted, once at the winery the fruit was destemmed with a high proportion of whole berries going into the fermenters. Fermentation took place using only indigenous “wild” yeast. The wine was gently hand-plunged and once alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wine was drawn off its skins into barrel. The wine spent 17 months in French oak barrels from a variety of Burgundy forests and cooperages, of which 35% were new. Bottled under diam cork which are certified taint-free.

This wine was bottled unfiltered on the 18th of December 2013. We recommend careful decanting prior to service. This wine will reward collectors over the next 10+ years from vintage."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2012 Vintage)
"​Flagship wine made from a tiny selection of the best grapes from their Bendigo vineyard. 100% destemmed. Plump, seamless pinot noir with cherry, spice and floral flavours plus a seasoning of French oak. Able to be appreciated now but with a structure of fine tannins that suggests ageing potential."
