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.
