2011 Winderlea Maresh Vineyard Pinot noir

136 Cases Produced

Our first single vineyard designate from Maresh shows a broad aroma spectrum of fruit from pomegranate, raspberry tea, golden raspberry and red plum to earthier notes of sweet wood box, basalt and dried tobacco. On the palate the flavor profile is a bit more focused starting with soft cedar spice and clove beautifully married to orange blossom, red cherries and ripe currants and gooseberry. The Maresh finishes round with great fruit, acid and soft tannins. Age until 2013 and enjoy after a short decant. Should cellar well for the remainder of the decade.
