Even ruby-red colour with garnet hues and some depth, a little lighter on the rim. This has a rich, deep and densely concentrated bouquet with aromas of savoury, dark-red cherry and berry fruits entwined with dark herbs and a layering of whole bunch stalk notes, red florals and the beginnings of secondary undergrowth complexities. Medium-full bodied, the palate has richly concentrated flavours of savoury dark cherry and berry fruits interwoven with herb and whole bunch stalk elements forming a rounded core. The palate unfolds undergrowth, red floral and nutty oak nuances that add complexity. The mouthfeel is fresh and vibrant with balanced lacy acidity, and the fruit supported by fine-grained tannin structure providing body and grip. The wine carries to a long, textured, savoury fruited finish. This is a concentrated Pinot Noir with a deep, rounded core of savoury red berry fruit with complexing secondary detail on a vibrant, fine-structured palate. Match with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Dijon clone fruit from the ‘Morrison’ vineyard, Lowburn-Parkburn, vines first planted 1997, indigenous yeast fermented with 50% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in seasoned French oak.
Medium ruby with a hint of purple, the 2011 Morrison's Vineyard Pinot Noir gives lovely spearmint and cherry aromas with nuances of black soil and rose hip tea. The nice tight knit red berry palate has great concentration and chewy tannins, finishing long. (LPB)
Healthy ruby. Sweet, exotic fruit. Something rather tropical-fruit-like about these aromas but they are much more interesting and complex than most. Tight and disciplined without being too sweet. Long. (JR)
