2017 Pinot Noir
Bright, fresh and lively, deep ruby coloured with great clarity and highly aromatic of dark cherry and complex forest floor layers. Lots of bold dark cherry fruit flavours well integrated with fine tannins and touch of smokiness from French oak, finishing with spice. Very silky and supple in the mouth with an easy deliciousness, an elegant wine. GOLD AUSTRALIAN SMALL WINEMAKERS SHOW.
2017 Dunbabin Family Reserve Pinot Noir
Only made in exceptional years, our 2017 Dunbabin Reserve Pinot Noir is a boisterous wine with floral notes of violets overlaying the complex evolving earthiness. Made from a select blend of clones - D4V2 and MV6, and from the premium block overlooking the cellar door planted in 1992. An extended period of time in new and older Burgundian oak barrels enhances and elaborates the fruit and creates dignified savoury truffle flavours. Satiny smooth silkiness from the tannins, soft spice with a density of textures. This wines’ future is bright and long with cellaring for up to 8 plus years recommended. Elegant and sophisticated, best with lamb or duck.
2017 Reserve Shiraz
With a smack of white pepper on the nose this intriguing cool climate Shiraz packs a punch. Blueberries, currants, and spiciness with a sleek texture. Vibrant red fruits, with hints of anise, dignity, length and well integrated tannins. With more in common with a Syrah than most Australian Shiraz, this wine has grace and glamour to impress with its real finesse. Pair with slow cooked lamb shoulder or seared tuna or a standing rib roast. Trophy winner at Tasmanian Wine Show 2019
