Description

Composition is aptly named... as brothers Dicey compose the wine from their Black Rabbit & Inlet vineyards. No two people know more about the growing and making of Pinot Noir in Central Otago or have been more successful than James & Matt. The hand harvested, hand sorted fruit is fermented with indigenous yeast and includes 25% whole cluster adding great complexity. It is aged in a judicious mix of French oak (28% new) for 11-months. Matt has taken the winemaking to flawlessness... perfect amounts of everything - none too much of anything. The wine is complex, rich, yet elegant and seamlessly flows across the palate to a long, beguiling finish. The 2013 won Best Pinot Noir in the World and we're confident that the 2017 vintage is just as good!

Smells

Ripe, dark red berry and plum fruits infused with liquorice, forest floor, spice and thyme herbs.

Tastes

A beautifully elegant, immaculately balanced Pinot Noir with luscious dark berries and plum fruits threaded by subtle herb/liquorice complexities. The tannin is silky, the mouth feel is svelte, and the soft juicy acidity carries its beguiling layers of flavour to a delicious crescendo. Special occasion level of quality that you can enjoy with regularity now through 2025 at its remarkably modest price.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
