From the 1984 Pinot Noir planting on the vineyard, known as block A2, this MV6 clone produces a consistent crop and small bunches.
A fine example of Pinot Noir showing perfume of cherry stone, raspberry, kirsch and allspice notes. The oak brings savoury elements and toasted aromas, while the whole bunches used in the winemaking give a smokey peat character.
The palate displays the fine and silky textural elements of a great Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry and raspberry fruits, campori spice and purple plum are supported by silky tanin structure. Peat and toast elements hance the fruit sweetness and create a seamless long and layered palate.
