Pinot Noir Fleurieu South Australia
Brian Croser established vines on a foggy, north facing slope of sandy clay loams at Parawa, very near the extreme south westerly point of Fleurieu Peninsula in 2003. The chilly maritime climes on Maylands Farm are a challenge for the vineyard team but they yield Pinot Noir of extraordinary eloquence and exquisite pastoral richness. A week of hand plunging and warmer ferments are gently air bag pressed into a high proportion of new French oak barriques for ten months maturation. Its voluminous palate unravels layers of complexity before an august, satin finish.

Deep purple hues. Ripe complex black fruit aromas, brooding and intense, liveliness and freshness to the bouquet. A palate of significant tannin profile, elegant and ripe, its garrulous dark cherry richness underpinned by a delicacy of cinnamon and vanilla cream oak, resolving powerful and long on a textural, stalk, game and liquorice infused finish.
