With grapes sourced from The Crater Rim's estate vineyard known for its clay over limestone soil this Pinot Noir displays persistent aromatics with notes of red and black cherries, old fashioned roses, savoury, spice and hints of game.

Sam Kim 5 STARS - 94/100: 'Richly fruited and seductively complex, the bouquet shows dark berry, game, truffle, cedar and dried herb characters.
