Quick Overview

Moderately deep, dark garnet-hued ruby-red colour with light bricking on edge. This has an elegant, penetrating bouquet with fine and intense aromas of savoury red berry fruits entwined with complex secondary dried herb, undergrowth and mushroom notes and cedary, minerally nuances. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly structured with succulent, savoury red berry fruits and dried herb complexities. The mouthfeel is lively and lacy from good acidity, and follows a very fine-grained tannin line. This has richness allied to acid raciness, with a refined core, and the flavours flow with energy and drive to a very long, sustained, savoury fruited, gamey finish. This is an elegant and succulent Pinot Noir with a racy mouthfeel, fine line and savoury development flavours. Serve with poultry, pork and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4-5+ years.

2011 was a cool year with excellent slow-ripened fruit. The vines at 9 years old were really getting their roots down into the limestone substrate and the wine shows the effect with magnificent perfumed aromas and enhanced minerality. The usual long finish with fine tannins contribute to a wine which, although young, shows the hallmarks of very fine pinot noir indeed.

Caroline’s Pinot Noir
Caroline Plummer was an extraordinary vital young woman of great energy, beauty and elegance. Her passion was the study of dance and its healing values.
She assisted in planting of the original block – Caroline’s.
In 2003 before her untimely death from a rare malignancy she gave her name to the first pinot noir.
Caroline’s Pinot Noir has become our flagship wine. It is made in the years when the season allows grapes which meet our rigorous quality standards.
Ripe fruit, spiciness, savoury aromas satisfying palate weight, minerality, velvet tannins. Extraordinary persistence. Elegance. A wonderful tribute to a wonderful young woman.
