Sourced from single vineyard in the higher lying area of Elgin. Cooler climate with more slate, sandstone and quartz soil types which drives a more elegant style and textured wine.
When compared to previous vintages, the 2017 Pinot Noir vintage has a modern edge. The drought meant that the winemaking team had more control over the growth and ripening of the vineyards, helping them to produce a fresher wine. In step with previous vintages, the 2017 wine offers floral and wild cherry notes
Bigger barrels, no new oak. The oldest barrel in the cellar is used for this wine, a barrel from 1998, Waterford Estates first vintage.
Pairs well with delicate food styles of turkey or pork garnished with cherries and earthy components.
