This wine epitomizes everything that was great about 2015. A fantastic year for Pinot, the cool, dry and long season really helped to bring out the ethereal flavours of this famously finicky variety. We’ve certainly been patient, giving it 40 months ageing on lees to really nurture these flavours and build texture and balance, giving the wine everything it needs for a very long life ahead.
I expect great things from this wine, but again we have to be patient. Although the 2015 is much more approachable at this stage than the 2013, don’t be fooled. By all means have a bottle this Christmas, but it will only really start opening up around the middle of next year. Time is the greatest winemaking tool we have.
