The Wine

Our Paradise Pinot Noir is a reserve wine made to reflect the best of the vintage. Only 900 bottles are produced from Barrel selections which are carefully aged before release.

The grapes for our 2013 Paradise were hand harvested on 20th April 2013, and were de-stemmed into an open top fermenter and left to cold soak before fermenting.  After fermentation the wine was aged in French Oak barriques for 10 months before the Paradise portion of this wine was selected and put aside for a further 3 months to age before being finished and bottled. The wine is aged for a further 3 years in bottle before release. 

The 2013 vintage is medium purple with purple hues.  The wine has a perfumed nose with dark fruit, mocha and spice.  Rich, sweet dark fruit on the plate with some leather, tobacco and cedar. A medium bodied wine with ample, supple, velvety tannin and good persistence on the finish.
