story

Reservoir Road Pinot Noir is part of our Terroir Specific wines. Our exploration takes us on a discovery of unique vineyard parcels, producing wines that are terroir expressive. The wines show a true sense of place, reflecting their growing condition perfectly.   

The Reservoir Road vineyard has a road winding past, this road leads to a reservoir, which is a beacon for this site. It is a low yielding bush vine vineyard, planted on a windswept hillside of weathered granite and 'coffee stone' soils. 

Identifying the ideal sites, cool area and marginal soils, is very important for the perfect terroir expression

tasting

The wine has great concentration and structure. There is tension in the wine, indicating the uniqueness of place, still remaining fresh and full of vibrancy. Blackberry and cherries are well defined, integrated with delicate violets. While savoury flavours of fragrant spices gives depth to the wine.
