About This Wine
Hillside frost-free site planted over limestone and clay. The oldest Pinot Noir block was planted in 1986 and is still on its own roots. Distinct from the Eclipse vineyard because of vastly different geology with the clays that deliver rich, velvety texture. This is perhaps a more approachable wine than Eclipse, but still with elegance and underlying power.
“Bright and Fresh, deep ruby red. A deep, complex and refined version of our Blue Rock terrior. Pretty cherry and rose oil with subtle violet florals which in a way belie the power and darkness brooding beneath. Game, earth, silt and something just out of reach… Palate is a study of tension and texture. Super refined and focused. Very pure and elegant with precise tannins and pitch perfect tone. So much more to unwind. Feels like a wine for the ages. Pretty epic. Really neat wine to savour now but ideally drink from mid-2024 onwards for a decade plus. Delicious with roast game fowl served with polenta and spiced beetroot & walnut salad. ” — Joel Watson, Winemaker
