- GREAT SOUTHERN PINOT NOIR FROM PLANTAGENET
- PREVIOUS VINTAGE 90 POINT RATED JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
- PLANTAGENET VINEYARDS WERE ESTABLISHED IN 1968
A vibrant maroon colour with spicy grapefruit and cherry aromatics, overlayed with sweet jube characters and subtle nutty french oak. The palate is medium-bodied, plush and elegant with highly concentrated fruit weight. The tannins are fine and rounded giving a lovely soft finish to the wine.

"Ripe and beautifully lifted on the nose with dark cherry, olive, almond and warm mushroom aromas, it's juicy and supple on the palate displaying elegant mouthfeel and silky tannins. Soothing and comforting with a lovely savoury finish." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Highly Rated Aaron Brasher The Real Review
Lifted and straightforward cherry, raspberry and spice aromas. Red fruits, woodsy and spice flavours, not complex, but generously flavoured and easy drinking.
The 2021 Great Southern vintage was characterised by a warmer than average March that aided ripening conditions for all key varietals, but particularly Shiraz and Cabernet. Rain in February provided critical soil moisture that allowed canopies to remain healthy and green and the normal cool nights in March allowed optimum acidity to be retained in the aromatic white varieties.
Pinot Noir was machine harvested in the cool early hours, was destemmed and not crushed to preserve as much whole berry component as possible. After several days of cold soak the must was allowed to warm gradually and inoculated with Pinot specific yeast strain. Gentle extraction from twice daily pump overs was followed by a light pressing to preserve the fruit aromatics and minimise tannin extraction. A short maturation in older French oak and early bottling to preserve freshness.
