Halliday - Supplement - - Pinot Noir & Nebbiolo Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $40 / 2026

Get a smell of this. This draws you straight in, the nose so exquisitely turned out, the palate fol­low­ing straight on, the fin­ish let­ting no one down. Un­der­growth, spice notes, cher­ries, plums, folds of satin, wafts of wood smoke. Oak cer­tainly con­trib­utes here, but the fruit has its back. One highly se­duc­tive pinot noir. CM 13.4% alc. I par­tic­u­larly love mak­ing pinot noir be­cause of its fickle and del­i­cate na­ture. The 2016 vin­tage was chal­leng­ing in hav­ing to wait for flavour; it tested your nerve. Hand­picked, cold-soaked and gen­tly han­dled, it spent 11 months in 500-litre French oak har­mon­is­ing flavour, tex­ture and bal­ance. This wine is a true re­flec­tion of site and vin­tage.
