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. Aromas of dark cherry and spice, with hints of violet, are offset by the flavours of richly dark plums and cherry. With good fruit concentration and supportive oak tannins, this wine has a lovely long persistence on the finish.
