16 Mile Rebel Pinot Noir 2016

This is the very first Estate Vineyard Rebel Pinot Noir. This Pinot has a wonderful deep colour, the nose is full of vibrant fruit notes such as cherry and strawberry and it holds a lengthy finish with well balanced tannins and acidity. This was made from hand picked destemmed grapes, a cool ferment and then aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Everything in this wine is just harmonious from ripe fruit and earth to nice acidity on the finish. The aromas offer ripe cherry with some violet that tries to poke through some of the fruit. On the palate this opens up with nice weight and texture – the floral note from the nose moves to centre stage and is joined with a subtle vanilla note. A damp earthy note starts to make an appearance on the finish but before it can take attention away from the fruit and flowers it is met with nice acidity. The tannin is smooth and this wine is dangerously easy to drink.
