Description

A special release to mark Quartz Reef's 21st birthday. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked from the 'Royal Block', the most eastern block of the vineyard. After a long gentle ferment, the wine went into two year old French oak barriques for 15 months. There is the usual Pinot Power from Rudi, but with a balanced elegance and style that is surprising.

Smells

Intense perfumed and alluring, cherry, plum, five spice and cinnamon.

Tastes

Full-bodied on the palate, cherry, dark berries and red berries. Licks of spice popping up here, there and everywhere. Tannins are ultra fine, texture is silky smooth, the balance is perfect. Drink now with Chinese Roast Duck, or cellar until 2024+.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
