2017 Australian Highlands Wine Awards - Gold & Trophy Winner
Our 2016 Pinot Noir is very much in the tradition of the multi-award-winning 2015. It is a slightly bigger wine than the 2015 but still very Burgundian in style.
Medium-density red/purple colour leads to black cherry and plummy aromas mixed with subtle cedar notes from the French oak. Medium palate weight reaffirms the cherry characteristics.
The tannins are firm and evenly balanced. It will continue to gain complexity as it ages.
Tasting Notes: This wine is an excellent accompaniment to duck and other red meats.
Region: Southern Highlands, NSW
Origin: Rotherwood Estate Vineyard
