Deftly balanced, rich, dark-coloured with rich plum and pretty floral, fruity aromatics. Luscious tannins which call one back into the glass – very appealing on the polished after taste! Great natural acidities and rewarding grape sugars brought a smile to the team.

in the vineyard : All our Galpin Peak Pinot Noir is produced here at the Domain where experience has shown that the quality of the wine is directly proportional to the clay content of individual vineyard sites.

Pinot Noir is said to be the most Terroir driven wine variety of all. It is tempting to say that this is why it is ever elusive to new growers and also why growers are shy to confront it per sé.

about the harvest: Vintage 2006 has followed admirably after the most successful 2005. Excellent quality grapes picked over a ten day period.
