Description

"Super-dense Pinot Noir from the excellent 2007 vintage. Rich and powerful wine with plum/prune, chocolate, dark cherry and Oriental spice flavours. The wine has a sumptuous, velvety texture that is totally seductive. It improved dramatically in the glass - an indication of cellaring potential". Bob Campbell MW

"The depth of dark florality is remarkable for such a dark wine, and there is an integration of black cherry and quite a lot of oak which is impressive . This 2007 can be cellared with total confidence: the cropping rate must have been very low to achieve this tactile feel of fruit richness (dry extract) on the tongue. One goal of the Excelsior project has been to produce a pinot noir which has longevity in bottle. This one seems richer even than the same-year (Peregrine) Pinnacle, and should therefore cellar for longer. It should fine down in bottle and gain in charm. Cellar 5 - 15 years." Geoff Kelly
