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 in exceptional years do we make our Family Reserve. 2017 was an exceptional year. Our 2017 Dunbabin Family Reserve Pinot Noir is a wonderful wine with floral notes of violets overlaying the complex earthy notes of forest floor and mushrooms. This elegant wine is made from a special blend of D4V2 and MV6 and the oldest vines on the property planted in 1992 in the premium block at the top of the hill overlooking the cellar door. The longer time in new and older Burgundy oak barrels lifts the wine with lovely savoury truffle flavours hinting at the future this wine will have with judicious cellaring for 8 plus years. Smooth with savoury soft spice and earthiness, and a soft seamless silkiness in the mouth with a density of flavours. Elegant and sophisticated, best with lamb or duck.
2017 Reserve Shiraz
There is loads of white pepper on the nose and blueberries, currants, and spiciness. A very silken texture with vibrant red fruits, hints of anise, elegance, length and well-integrated tannins. With more in common with a Syrah than most Australian Shiraz, this wine has wow factor to impress with its real finesse. Try our Shiraz with slow cooked lamb shoulder or seared tuna or a standing rib roast.
