A wine which we will only produce in years we deem to be exceptional for
Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir. The 2016 Reserve Pinot Noir brings together the two
finest barriques from the Lenswood and Piccadilly sub regions of the Adelaide
Hills to create a wine epitomising the grace, lift and elegance of this truly
remarkable vintage.


Batches of fruit are selected from two premium high altitude Adelaide Hills
vineyards at Carey Gully and Piccadilly with each separately vinified. Both
are cane pruned and on VSP trellis.

Produced in small batches, all cold soaked and hand plunged in open
fermenters. To create complexity and lift the D4V2 Pinot Noir Clone from
Lenswood was vinified using a percentage of whole bunches while the MV6
and 115 clones from Piccadilly were destemmed and fermented as whole
berries without crushing. 100% malolactic fermentation aged in French Oak
barriques (33% new) for 10 months. Bottled 8 months prior to release with
minimal filtration.
