Domain Road Pinot Noir
Classic Pinot from Bannockburn, dark cherry and spice.
The tiny settlement of Bannockburn was once a bustling gold rush town in the 1860s, owner Graeme Crosbie's great grandfather having built up gold dredges in the region. In 2002 Graeme and wife Gillian converted an apricot orchard into vineyards next to the Bannockburn camping ground, with an additional plot next to the Felton Road vineyard.
The grapes are hand picked, fully destemmed, and wild fermented before 10 months of aging in French barriques - bottled unfined (incidentally this makes it a vegan-friendly wine, though this isn't the main reason!)
With dark purple hues, this wine is wonderfully complex. Fragrant aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and violets, with a hint of spice and vanilla, are complemented by rich dark fruit, black plum and ripe blackberry, on the palate. A complex, concentrated wine with ample fine tannins and a hint of chocolate and spice in its tantalisingly long finish.
Cameron Douglas: There's no mistaking the bouquet and origin of this wine - with savoury wild thyme and dried herb scents leading to aromas of oak, dark cherry and dried raspberry. On the palate - dry, textured, tense, fruity and firm."
