Beautiful primary cherry fruit lift and pretty violets. Highly aromatic with some oak adding vanilla and spice. An elegant and silky fruit profile, cherry-berry fruits explode once the wine hits the palate. Some graphite and oak spice bring structure to the finish.
98 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
Medium to deep purple/red colour, very youthful, with a spicy, toasty, oak-driven aroma at first sniff; black cherry coming up with time in the glass. The palate is medium to full-bodied and oak initially seems uppermost in the flavour spectrum. Dark cherry again. The wine is fleshy and supple-textured, with gentle, soft tannins and good length. The aromatics are outstanding. Enormous palate length. This is a stunning pinot that will profit from a little cellaring.

Fruit from original 1969 plantings. Destemmed, whole berries into 600kg fermenters with some stalks. Matured in French oak, 40% new, for 10 months. This is all about refinement, and in a way, it has a deceptive gentleness, as the flavours are subtle, the oak has meshed into the body of the wine and the silky tannins weave across the palate. Arguably the finest Carrodus pinot to date.
Hand harvested and destemmed without crushing to retain whole berries in 600kg small fermenters. Some stalks returned to bring lift and structure. Hand plunged twice daily for gentle extraction before gentle pressing. Maturation in French oak barrels, 40% new for 10 months.
