2017 Block 4 Pinot Noir
A wet spring led to a later start, however, the 2017 season was hotter and more compressed than normal. The season brought smaller berry size, clusters and yields. Fruit quality was excellent, characterized by high flavour concentration, moderate alcohol, balanced tannins, complexity and natural acidity
On the upper slopes of our CedarCreek Home Block Vineyard, the sandy loam soils in Block 4 provide excellent drainage. These 22-year-old vines work hard and dig deep to access water, forcing lower yields and increased concentration – smaller berries, darker colour & increased aging potential.
Savoury gamey notes, supported by plum and a hint of spice. Long red currant finish.
