1 BOTTLE ONLY LEFT OF THE 2017 VINTAGE
At our doorstep the fresh highland waters of the River Derwent meet the tidal influence of the Derwent Estuary, creating a unique microclimate. We fondly refer to this label as the “Boat Label” which signifies our connection of time and place with the river. On the shore the remnants of the old jetty point to a time gone past where produce was transported by river. Nowadays it is a popular fishing spot for sea run trout. After 24 years of nurture our vines steadfastly call this place home. Enjoy.
Plum and black cherry fruits with earthy undertones. Rich cherry and dark berry fruits fill the palate and carry through with some firmness. This is a wine of impressive structure thanks to assertive French oak including 25% new wood. Bright natural acidity and perfectly ripened tannins highlight the luscious fruits of this perfectly balanced wine. A classic cool-climate pinot noir to enjoy or cellar.
