Taste Profile:This Broad Valley 2014 maiden vintage has produced a classically-styled Pinot Noir with herbaceous undertones on the palate, rich forest floor, fruity spice flavours and a savoury finish. Integrated oak tannins stand up well to the expressive and dark ripe red fruit. The wine is expected to develop more complexity and body over time and should be drinking well for the next eight years.
Serving Suggestion:Decant for up to two hours before serving, serve at 18 °C in deep-bowled Burgundian stemware.
Food Pairing:Will pair well with fillet tagliata, grilled veal with lemon and olive oil, or game dishes with savoury flavours.
PINOT NOIR 2015
This second vintage Pinot Noir is fuller than the maiden 2014 vintage. The wine appears ripe on the palate with smoky, nutmeg aromas on the nose. Juicy black cherry and cassis flavours combine with rustic gamy undertones to deliver a poised and bright finish. The wine is bright and complex and will drink well for the next six to seven years. There are similar integrated oak tannins to the maiden 2014 vintage but with a more prominent nose and palate with riper fruit flavours at its core.
Decant for up to two hours before serving, serve at 18 °C in deep bowled Burgundian stemware.
Will pair well with charcuterie, flavoured duck or grilled tuna.
