Coldstream Hills Reserve Pinot Noir 2017
The Coldstream Hills Reserve selection begins in the vineyard, invariably anchored on the famous low-yielding Amphitheatre A Block. A higher percentage of new French oak, longer time in barrel and selecting the best grapes for structure delivers an approachable Pinot Noir in its youth but with the ability to gracefully age.
Aromatic fruits and spice with underlying graphite mineral notes and subtle French oak deliver a beguiling nose. This medium-bodied Pinot Noir continues the notes from the bouquet on the long, flavoursome and savoury palate. It finishes with characteristically chalky and persistent tannins.

2012 - Powerful release. Brooding depth of fruit with the tannin and length to match. Firm dark cherried fruit, beautifully pitched and ripened, and an array of dried spices with top notes of orange rind. Oozes confidence and class. Flexes its muscles as it opens in the glass
