Goldfields Pinot noir 2012

GFPN12frontOur 2012 vintage Goldfields Pinot noir once again highlights the classic savoury characters of this magnificent grape variety. All becomes clear with the first mouthful.  A very complex taste sensation unfolds revealing all the nose promised as well as layers of mushroom, straw, liquorice, to say nothing of a gentle spiciness – cinnamon perhaps? Although still young at the time of writing (June 2014) the tannins are integrating well and show great promise of cellaring potential, but already show our “trademark” seductive character.

This wine has flavours of black cherries, dark plums and berries. Behind these primary flavours there is an interesting hint of herbs, spice, mushroom, leather and even liquorice complementing its velvety mouthfeel.

Dry Riesling 2013

Ries 13 front

A youthful, classic Riesling.  Our 2013 Bannock Brae Riesling is luminous apple green in appearance and displays lemon-lime and mineral aromas with hints of citrus blossom.  Full and lively with flavours of citrus rind, green apple skin and hints of stone fruit. A textural wine with perfect balance between fruit flavours & the high natural acidity.

Salmon pink in colour, this Rosé is a pure reflection of the Pinot noir grape.  It boasts a beautifully opulent nose of freshly picked red berry fruits with melon and candy-floss aromas.

Marlene’s Grüner Veltliner 2013

GV 13 front

Our Marlene’s Grüner Veltliner 2013 shows classic aromas of white pepper, nectarine, fruit blossom and hints of dill.   The palate is crisp and distinctive with flavours of nectarine, white peach and a juicy acid finish.  A vibrant wine, precise, with good structure and a backbone of zesty acidity leaving the wine with a refreshing finish.
