The first single vineyard wine off the 19 year old Sauvage Vineyard vines in Bannockburn. The vineyard itself is located under hills once prized for gold in this region, now cloaked in wild thyme and rosehip. The land below is widely sought after for Pinot Noir and the foothills are framed with vines.
This wine compromises a mix of clones from different areas within our site. Enticing aromas of spice, mushrooms, and dark red fruits accompany earth and herb tones. The palate shows wonderful elegance and focus, supported by a textural core, with fine lengthy tannins driving persistence. Expected cellaring 7-10 years.
