2023 Harewood Estate FLUX V Pinot Noir


All Prices shown are GST Inclusive

This Pinot Noir has been produced from Harewood Estate’s F-block. This block has been planted with a selection of the “Dijon” clones, which are part of a small group of unique clones that were identified, isolated and propagated by Dijon University researcher Dr Raymond Bernard from the best performing, highest pedigree Pinot vineyards in Burgundy – clones 114, 115, and 777. The clones have been attributed with producing wines of excellent aroma, structure, intensity and balance.

F block is a north facing site with a gentle slope on gravely karri loam soils. The pinot is dry grown.

The wine was matured in a mix of new and older French oak barriques for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.

The wine has been bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve the inherent delicate complexities of cool climate Pinot noir and may have a slightly cloudy appearance.

The presence of these fine “lees” will help the Pinot to soften with careful cellaring.

A light crimson with hints of purple.

An intense nose of black cherry and dark fruits supported by complex hints of liquorice and spice.

Rich flavours of blackberry and ripe plum are complemented by more complex notes of spice and aniseed on the mid palate. The wine finishes with hints of black cherry and coffee bean supported by velvety tannins and toasty French oak.
