Our Wines

All our wines are grown from vines that are sustainably grown and harvested by hand.

8 Ranges Barrel Selection Pinot Noir 2013

Deep red/magenta colour with a smokey red-fruit bouquet that leaps out of the glass.  Full and rounded with a gorgeous texture and a great balance of savoury, herbal and berry fruit flavours.  Although still young for one of our premium wines, it already has intensity and length - a wine you can drink now but will develop well for the next 5-8 years with cellaring.

8 Ranges Barrel Selection Pinot Noir 2010

 

Only 10 barrels were selected from this outstanding vintage to make this limited edition wine.

 

 

Dark ruby red in colour.  Black cherry, herb and liquorice aromas.  Complex flavours - black berry-fruits and dark cherries entwined with dried herbs.  Deep smokey and oaky tones.  Very fine-grained tannins with a tight finish and excellent length.  Cellar with confidence to 2018 and beyond.

 

 

This is a superb wine which is just starting to show its true potential.  Burgandian in style.
